Addressing

The DNS Lookup Process

Addressing is what Pipe Ten refers to as pointing or directing one thing towards another thing.

In its simplest and most frequent form this involves registering a domain name and pointing it to name servers, creating DNS records on those name servers, which point towards the location of the service whether that might be a website, mail server or other online service.

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).
