extensible name service (XNS)

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

. XNS

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.
