How to set rDNS

To set the rDNS on your provided IP’s allocated to your Dedicated Server, you’ll need to be logged into your Dedi. Server Management Panel. This article assumes that How to Access the Dedi Management Panel has been read and you’re familiar how to login.

Once you’re within your panel, you’ll want to manage the server you wish to set rDNS for by clicking the “manage” button beside the server.

We only have one here, so we’ll use this one.

Once you’re on the next page within this management interface for your selected server, you’ll want to scroll down to the rDNS section that shows as such (this is a drop down, so you’ll need to click it to expand).

We’ve clipped the screenshot to only show the rDNS section.

Once you’ve configured/listed the rDNS names for each IP, click “Save” and the configuration will update.

You can then check rDNS/PTR via command line such as dig:

  [root@serverhere]# dig -x 21599  IN      PTR

If it shows up, your rDNS has now propagated and other services that check such records should report the same.
