This document describes the usage of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) [RFC7230] for the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP). The goal of this document is to tie together usage patterns of HTTP into a common profile applicable to the various types of directory services serving registration data using practices informed by the Representational State Transfer (REST) [REST] architectural style. By giving the various directory services common behavior, a single client is better able to retrieve data from directory services adhering to this behavior.
