    DNS server problems


    I have been looking for this answer everywhere, most people either dont understand what I'm asking or they dont want to help (they are obviously not Linux Guys) so I would like to put the question out to the forum, amongst other articles, I have also read the how stuff works DNS explaination, it was very useful in terms of the jargon.

    My problem is this, I have setup a webserver at my office, I had previously registered a domain name, through hostweb.co.za and now I asked the guy from hostweb to point to my webserver he asked me for the following information:

    1. Primary server FQDN:
    2. Primary server IP address:

    3. Secondary server FQDN:
    4. Secondary server IP address

    Ok now I dont have my own DNS server at my office so what do I do?

    You could setup your own DNS servers or look for a third party DNS service provider.

    DNS servers

    When I connect to the internet I use to DNS servers, in my TCP/IP settings, can I use those servers for my FQDN, are are they only for outgoing requests?
