    Really easy question for webserver gurus regarding DNS

    I have a Win2k Advanced Server machine with IIS configured properly I think. I have a domain registered but I have no idea what to put for the DNS servers. I'm guessing this is my IP (its dynamic at the moment but will be static soon) so thats what I put in. The actual server needs a name to go with the IP so I just put ns1.thenameofmywebsite.com. Is this correct? Also, it made me put in a secondary DNS as well. Is this for a backup server? I have no idea what to put here.

    These may seem like really dumb questions but I have no experience with setting up webservers. Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks.

    You should use your domain register company's default DNS servers. Unless you're paying for web hosting, you're not going to get anything else to put in there.

    At the very list, your domain name service should provide URL framing / forwarding.
