How to add a PTR record

Follow

In order to add PTR record, please new add domain with name matching pattern below :

- IPv4 followed by ".in-addr.arpa"

- IPv6 address followed by ".ip6.arpa"

Once you add the domain you can then create PTR records with the ppropriate hostname.

Let say you have a IP address 1.2.3.4

you have to create DNS zone with REVERSED IP address in name:
4.3.2.1.in-addr.arpa (this will be a new domain in your account)

Then you have to create PTR record matching the name you want. Let say it's my_server.somewhere.com

type: PTR
name: 4.3.2.1.in-addr.arpa.
data: my_server.somewhere.com

for more detail about PTR records see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_DNS_lookup
