Hot potato routing

Can someone provide basic details on hot potato routing (I am referring to multiple peering interconnections between 2 ISPs) ?

Is it implemented by BGP or not ?

Please, we're still dealing with the DNS thread. One at a time.

ANY routing between providers generally uses BGP. There are a
very few exceptions, so I'll not say always. Hot potato is the
easy, default method.

You probably could have found something via Google in less time
than it took me to type this... read a BGP tutorial such as Avi's
first.
