extensible name service (XNS)

Extensible NameService (XNS) is an open protocol for universal addressing


isbased on the Extensible Markup Language

(XML) and has some similarity to theDNS system. While the DNS system resolves a domain name into an IP address, XNS can resolve universal addresses

into other addresses. Thus, a universal address of a Web client can be decomposed into the individual contact information such as the address, telephone number, and e-mail address and managed automatically when changes occur.
