    Question RDNS setup question

    Can I setup my own RDNS in my server?

    I read that this is usually done by ISP, in my case burst.net.

    Your provider would have to delegate authority over the IP addresses to you, if you were to want to be able to change the reverse yourself.

    I am sure that Burst would be more than happy to do it for you, though.

    You are correct. You will need to contact BurstNET to have rdns setup for your server.

    Why I'm asking this is that my client who is hosting his DNS on my server wants 219.95.109.108 to have RDNS. I told him to contact his ISP for this IP but he claims it can be done on my server.

    how about resellers? when i use my extra IPs to setup another DNS on my server, just for that reseller, do i need to inform datacenter to setup rdns as well?

    my main domain's dns was setup already.

    Yes, you need to setup each IPs individually.

    If that IP is in your server then it can be done (provided that the datacenter allows it), but if the IP is somewhere else then you can't do it, the only possible way (yes, it's insane) would be to contact the carrier that routes that IP block, plus ARIN and let them know that your server will be the auth DNS for that IP (LoL)
