What Should Your DNS Numbers Be?

What is a DNS number? It's how a computer converts a name (which we understand) to a number (which a computer understands).

For example, www.wifimw.com = 38.114.87.4

DNS stands for Domain Name System, which is a server "out on the internet" that takes your request and correctly routes it to where you want to go. There are literally thousands of DNS servers on the internet, but we use just 2 of them, and they are fast and robust. When you enter a domain name (URL) in your browser's address line and then hit Enter, you are actually requesting a DNS lookup, which converts "www.wifimw.com" to "38.114.87.4" and then your page will download.

The DNS servers for www.wifimw.com are:

Primary = 10.251.0.1 (our own DNS server)
Secondary = 208.67.222.222 (out on the internet just in case ours fails)
