The DNS Lookup Process

Addressing is what Pipe Ten calls pointing or directing, one thing toward another thing.

Simplest and most frequently; this involves registering a domain name and pointing it to nameservers, creating DNS records on those nameservers, which point towards the location of the service / website / mail server.

More complex addressing services include local load balancing (application layer high availability, directing requests to different backend services) and geographic load balancing (global high availability or granularity, pointing requests to different front end services).
