Hostname/DNS help

How do you determine the correct hostname/DNS when installing remotley on a dedicated server (PXE/vnc).
I was only given my server ip and a gateway ip from the provider.

The install works fine and im able to ssh to the server so i must be doing something right.
Im just not sure how to setup the DNS Configuration you get on first boot, and think this may be causing my problem of vsftpd taking over 30sec for someone to connect to it.

in dns configuration it has:

Hostname: server.gamingdeluxe.co.uk
Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:
Tertiary DNS:
DNS search path: gamingdeluxe.co.uk

All those settings were like that after the install, i only provided the ip, gateway, and dns for eth0 during install.

Anyone have an idea if that looks ok or not?
