What is the secondary dns?
The reason why there are primary and secondary DNS addresses is for redundancy. If the first (primary) DNS server cannot be accessed for host resolution the secondary DNS server address is used as a fallback. Usually your ISP or preferred DNS host would provide you with both.

Hello, This will depend on where you choose to host your DNS. If you have not modified your DNS (or name) servers, then chances are that your DNS is currently hosted with y…our domain registrar. You can check your name servers with the Linux command: dig +short ns You can also get this information from a DNS tools site such as: http://network-tools.com Good Luck!

This differs a little bit from operating system to operating system but I will assume you are working with Windows. If so then click on the Windows start button on the bottom …left side, then in the search bar type "cmd" and then hit enter. This should open up command prompt. Then in the black window that opened up you should type "ipconfig /all" There look for something that says DNS servers. There will be an ip address listed right by DNS Servers. The first one listed is the primary, the one directly under it is the secondary and so on. There are also some websites that are able to detect this for you, but I would learn the command prompt way because that offers you a lot of tools and capabilities. Also if you are unsure as to how to use a command then you could type "help" and that will bring up a bunch of commands. If you want to learn about the command and the different switches, or options available with them then type the command followed by a "/?". For example if you would like to find out more about the ipconfig command then you would type: ipconfig /? This would display the options available with that command. Happy networking to you:)

In a command window type: "ipconfig /all" (without the quotation marks but with a space in front of the slash) there you can read a number of things such as IP number, MAC add…ress, and the DNS should be there. To open a command prompt in Windows XP and other Microsoft operating systems, point to Start > Run and type "cmd" in the dialog that opens.
IF the DNS is already confiruged in the network then 1. on command prompt type IPCONFIG /all will give you the IP of both DNS servers 2. check the TCPIP properties of NIC(e…thernet card) It will be mentioned/configured there
A DNS server is a server that looks up the IP address of the webserver you are trying to access. You can change what DNS serversyou connect with by using OpenDNS or a DNS serv…ice like Google'sDNS server at 188.8.131.52. 10.1.1.1 is a local IP address which wouldcould be your router, so your router is acting as your LAN's DNSserver in that case.
Secondary DNS gets its records from the Primary DNS Server. The secondary DNS is essentially there in case the primary DNS doesn't respond.
Usually you would find a considerable amount of information via your Wireless Router administrator panel. You can access that by: Start > Run > Cmd > ipconfig/all Copy your …Default Gateway address and paste this in your brower's address bar. You should be prompted for a username/password. These will be given to you by your ISP when you had your router delivered or you can look underneath your router for a little sticker displaying your username and password. You should be able to access the router homepage and have a look at additional DNS settings usually under 'Settings' or 'Device Settings'.
You can find information on a secondary DNS server online at websites such as Tech Support Alert and Gizmo's Tech Support. The major selling point in operating a secondary DNS… server is the stability it can provide if your primary domain goes down.
