Abstract

This document explains the use of the Domain Name System (DNS) for the storage of URIs [RFC3986] and how to resolve hostnames to such URIs that can be used by various applications using the URI resource record type. For resolution, the application needs to know both the hostname and the protocol that the URI is to be used for. The protocol is registered by IANA.
