/srv contains site-specific data which is served by this system.

http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#SRVDATAFORSERVICESPROVIDEDBYSYSTEM

In clearer terms, anything the system serves to the network is supposed
to go in this directory. In order to comply with the FHS, which Ubuntu
endeavors to, the directory must be present. That said, Debian based
systems traditionally serve webpages from /var/www, and other services
use other directories scattered across the system. /srv is the standard,
and should be used if you have a choice.
