This plugin provides a host-meta - file for WordPress (RFC: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6415).

From the RFC:

Web-based protocols often require the discovery of host policy or metadata, where host is not a single resource but the entity controlling the collection of resources identified by URIs with a common host as defined. While these protocols have a wide range of metadata needs, they often define metadata that is concise, has simple syntax requirements, and can benefit from storing its metadata in a common location used by other related protocols.

Because there is no URI or a resource available to describe a host, many of the methods used for associating per-resource metadata (such as HTTP headers) are not available. This often leads to the overloading of the root HTTP resource (e.g. 'http://example.com/') with host metadata that is not specific to the root resource (e.g. a home page or web application), and which often has nothing to do it.

This memo registers the "well-known" URI suffix 'host-meta' in the Well-Known URI Registry established by, and specifies a simple, general-purpose metadata document for hosts, to be used by multiple Web-based protocols.
