Which is the correct agent to receive DMCA notices regarding copyright infringement: the agent for the domain-name registrar or the agent for the name-server registrar?

In case they are different ones, I think it is the domain-name registrar that should have the original details.

They are different names -- essentially (hypothetical names used here):

domain name registrar: BIGBULKCHEAPHOST.COM
name server: QQ1.SERVERNAME.COM

registrar for the above name server: ANOTHERCOMPANY.COM

So to which registrar do I submit the DMCA take-down notice? The second one would seem to make more sense, since they have control over the actual server that stores the infringing material (web page). Right?

I'm sorry if I sound naive, but I just don't know how the domain registration business works. It looks like several different parties in a chain each take a little piece of the action. I find it very confusing.
