       Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) Domain Name Mapping

Abstract

   This document describes an Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP)
   mapping for the provisioning and management of Internet domain names
   stored in a shared central repository.  Specified in XML, the mapping
   defines EPP command syntax and semantics as applied to domain names.
   This document obsoletes RFC 4931.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes an Internet domain 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 4931 [RFC4931].

   [RFC5730] 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
