    You will need to ask your hosting provider to do this for you and not all providers offer reverse DNS.

    Consult your hosting service provider, they are the only one to help you out. I am sure they will do it for you in a moment.

    A few server service providers offer self-administration for rDNS in the server control panel, but most require you to open a ticket so they can do it for you.

    If you are using shared web hosting on a dedicated IP you should contact your hosting provider and ask then to setup the rDNS record, as ajonate says, some provide an self service web interface for you to do it for yourself. We do for all our VPS clients, but not for shared hosting.
    If you are on a shared IP you won't have the option of setting up an rDNS record, because the IP is not used solely by yourself.

    If you are hosting your own servers, you will need to contact your internet service provider that if you have dedicate IP from them. If you are hosting somewhere contact your hosting provider they will be able to help setup your rDNS (not available on shared hosting with shared IP)

    If you are using shared hosting the provider will not change the RDNS for the IP address for you.

    There would be no point to a custom rDNS with a shared hosting account.
