How to Add PTR Record
Posted on July 8th, 2016
You may refer the following video tutorial to setup PTR record with InterServer or read further.
In this tutorial, we can check how to add a PTR record. PTR is also known as Reverse DNS. IP address to domain name mapping is the opposite of forward (normal) DNS which maps domain names to IP addresses. Reverse DNS differs from forward DNS by who points the zone to your DNS server. With forward DNS, you point the zone to your DNS server by registering that domain name with a registrar. With reverse DNS, your Internet connection provider (ISP) must point the zone to your DNS server.
Adding PTR Record via InterServer
1) Login to your client area.
2) Select the product.
3) Go to the section Maintenance and click the option ‘Reverse DNS’.
4) Enter the hostname in the field “Hostname”.
5) Click the button ‘Update reverse DNS’.
That is how we add PTR record via client area.
