I'm not sure of your exact setup, but you probably won't need that info.
If this is on a home connection and you plan to use it behind a router
or something, you can put in pretty much anything for the
hostname/domain (for example, mine is "amd64.localhost"). If it's
directly into a cable modem then maybe try via DHCP or however they
An easy way to find that info out though is here:
At the bottom it lists your reverse DNS. You could also do a nslookup on
your IP to get it.
