NAPTR (Naming Authority Pointer) RECORD INFORMATION
A newer type of DNS record that support regular expression based rewriting.
This record set maps the phone number +441632960083 onto three possible identically ordered URIs, with a preference for SIP, then H323, and finally email. In each case, the regular expression matches the full AUS (^.$), and replaces it with a URI (e.g., sip:firstname.lastname@example.org). As this is a terminal record, this URI is returned to the client.Though most NAPTR records replace the full AUS, it is possible for the regular expression to back-reference part of the AUS, to grab an extension number, say:
Once the client has the URI it must be resolved using DNS, but this is no longer part of the DDDS algorithm..
Host can be an @ character (most common) or an alpha-numeric string with periods, hyphens and underscores. Doesn't have to be a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)
