Abstract

This document describes a protocol for the registration and management of second level domain names and associated name servers in both generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) and country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs). This protocol was developed by the Network Solutions Registry for use within the Shared Registration System and is being published "as-is" to document the protocol implementation developed by the Network Solutions, Inc. Registry.

Internet domain name registration typically involves three entities: a registrant who wishes to register a domain name, a registrar who provides services to the registrant, and a registry that provides services to the registrar while serving as the authoritative repository of all functional information required to resolve names registered in the registry’s TLDs. This document describes a protocol for registry-registrar communication only. The protocol does not provide any registrant services.
