    Hi,

    I keep hearing that reverse DNS requires activation by the data center. But when I asked my DC (FDC Servers) about it, they replied:

    ==========
    For reverse authority over your IPs, please provide the following:

    Put your ips in the following format:

    subnet: 66.90.68

    69 IN NS ns2.blah.com. <--- put dot
    70 IN NS ns2.blah.com. <--- put dot

    OR you can supply us with the PTR entires.

    Please do so in this format:
    Subnet 66.90.112

    4 IN PTR blah.domain.com. <--- put dot
    5 IN PTR another.domain.com. <--- put dot
    ==========

    So it sounds as if he's saying that I can assert reverse authority over my IPs by using the first method. Am I correct in interpreting it that way? If so, where do I add those entries...at the root level or in WHM?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I read it a little different.
    They are asking you to supply to them the necessary info.
    Maybe i am wrong, english is not my native language.

    You read it correctly. The DC is requesting information and providing two formats the information should conform to.
