    Hello, i also have a problem with my rDNS, this is the error:

    host 192.34.59.94
    Host 94.59.34.192.in-addr.arpa. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

    can you help me?

    Reverse DNS is now fully supported based on the name you provide for your droplet in the control panel.

    If you want to change the reverse DNS after the virtual server is created simply rename it from the virtual server page and reverse DNS will also get updated.

    Thanks

    @Moisey Uretsky : PTR record is not configured for my instance. Why is that?

    pallotron@skunk:~$ host 141.0.169.68
    Host 68.169.0.141.in-addr.arpa. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

    Right now the reverse DNS is completely automated and pointed to your virtual servers hostname.

    We will be updating the DNS functionality to allow you to set your own rDNS entries in the future to whatever you would like.

    Can we request (through a support ticket) that a certain rDNS be set?

    Currently reverse DNS is automatically configured based on the hostname of your virtual server.

    One could use the Hurricane Electric tunnel broker to get address space ...

    We will be adding the ability to manage reverse DNS records in our DNS management interface soon, however we do not have a specific ETA on that yet.
