Request For Comments (RFCs) are technical documents that define the standards for the Internet. The Web, in fact, has developed and operates according to rules and conventions - primarily, those relating to TCP / IP, the DNS system, or netiquette. These have been screened and approved by the community and have thus subsequently become "de facto" standards recognized by all users.
Anyone can write an RFC to improve the functioning of the network and the services it provides: RFCs have been vetted by a community of engineers and researchers dealing with the development of the network (the Internet Engineering Task Force, IETF) and remain open for additions and comments. Their approval is not based on formal voting, but on general consensus.
Each RFC is serially numbered in order of publication so as not to cause errors.
There are also ISO standards which are adopted internationally to ensure the functioning of the network.
Here are some standards that underpin the most well-known and commonly used applications in the field of domain registration:
