A quick google turned up:


"The Domain Name System is a distributed hierarchical system for 
resolving host names into IP addresses. The DNS has a root domain at the 
top of the hierarchy and directly under are the top-level domains. The 
root of the tree has no name. All siblings of a domain must have unique 
names. Children of a domain are called subdomains of the parent."


On another note, I know you (Michael) are interested in genealogy. How 
do you get the root of a family tree?
