This memo specifies the structure of a Naming Authority Pointer (NAPTR) DNS Resource Record (RR) for localizing a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) in more popular protocols like HTTP, SMTP, and FTP. URI localization means transforming by locale (geography and language) a URI into another URI that identifies a local resource. This URI transformation, where feasible, can help distribute content more efficiently and appropriately.
