The DNAME record provides redirection for a subtree of the domain
name tree in the DNS.  That is, all names that end with a particular
suffix are redirected to another part of the DNS.  This document
obsoletes the original specification in RFC 2672 as well as updates
the document on representing IPv6 addresses in DNS (RFC 3363).

This document is a product of the DNS Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
