The Domain Name System (DNS) is defined in literally dozens of different RFCs. The terminology used by implementers and developers of DNS protocols, and by operators of DNS systems, has sometimes changed in the decades since the DNS was first defined. This document gives current definitions for many of the terms used in the DNS in a single document.
This document obsoletes RFC 7719 and updates RFC 2308.
For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.
For the definition of Stream, see RFC 4844.
