In ubiquitous geographic information environment, the users are provided with geographic information anywhere and any time on their needs by any types of devices and communication media. The unique location ID, ePosition, is a new technology to support UBGI environment, using a logical location ID instead of physical location of a point of interest. Domain names of plural ePosition servers, where location information with its ePosition is stored, needs to be registered in DNS for some service through Internet. For better ePosition service of the type of public service like email service, a set of DNS resource records can be newly defined. This paper suggests a new DNS resource record EPO for implementation of the ePosition service through Internet.
