DNS reversals

It is possible to add DNS reverses specific to your server. To do this, first click on the button MANAGEMENT OF DNS REVERSALS of the section TOOLS.

Reverse DNS, also called pointer record or PTR-Record, allows you to obtain the domain name associated with a given IP address. I have an IP address, what is the host name associated with it? It is important to have a Reverse DNS to avoid the denial of access to certain services, such as the e-mail service. An e-mail sent from a server that does not have Reverse DNS, will have a high chance of being refused or spammed, as if the legitimacy of the sending server is highly unlikely.

Reverse DNS

The interface allows you to add or remove a reverse DNS.
