What DPI should be used for what situations?

I've been seeing the word 'DPI' pop up quite a lot when I export my work out in Photoshop and Illustrator. While I know that DPI stands for 'dots per inch', and that if you have too low of a DPI on an image, heavy pixellation occurs if you try to zoom in, what would be the optimal DPI for what situations?For example (Situations): - Exporting a print A4 design - Website layout - Logo (Website only - Roughly smaller than the current SE Graphic Design one.) - Logo (Scaling up and down - From business cards to large banners.)
