    No, it is primarily for mail servers, so that when a rDNS lookup is done it knows the proper domain, it is a method of matching an IP to a name, instead of a name to an IP.

    Your web host should be able to add a reverse DNS entry for free, I think it's part of your webhosting plan/package. It is only a couple entries in DNS nothing major.
