The File Transfer Protocol, as defined in RFC 959, does not provide a
way for FTP clients and servers to differentiate between multiple DNS
names that are registered for a single IP address.  This document
defines a new FTP command that provides a mechanism for FTP clients
and servers to identify individual virtual hosts on an FTP server.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
