Abstract

   This document describes an Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
   mapping for the provisioning and management of Internet host names
   stored in a shared central repository.  Specified in XML, the mapping
   defines EPP command syntax and semantics as applied to host names.
   This document obsoletes RFC 3732.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes an Internet host name mapping for version 1.0
   of the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP).  This mapping is
   specified using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 as described
   in [W3C.REC-xml-20040204] and XML Schema notation as described in
   [W3C.REC-xmlschema-1-20041028] and [W3C.REC-xmlschema-2-20041028].
   This document obsoletes RFC 3732 [RFC3732].

   [RFC4930] provides a complete description of EPP command and response
   structures.  A thorough understanding of the base protocol
   specification is necessary to understand the mapping described in
   this document.

   XML is case sensitive.  Unless stated otherwise, XML specifications
   and examples provided in this document MUST be interpreted in the
   character case presented to develop a conforming implementation.

1.1.  Relationship of Host Objects and Domain Objects

   This document assumes that host name objects have a subordinate
   relationship to a superordinate domain name object.  For example,
   host name "ns1.example.com" has a subordinate relationship to domain
