    changing reverse dns records ?

    Hello,

    I signed up for a dedicated server this weekend.
    I'd like to know if its possible to change or even delete the reverse dns record from the ip address from my server ?
    Is it possible to hide the "dig -x ip" results ?
    I don't want them to know in which provider i am....

    Thank you

    Yes, it is possible. Your host can easily change it to whatever you wish.

    It's not possible for me to do it myself having a dedicated server?
    Like in DNS ZONE or something in WHM...
    I red somewhere this could be done creating/changing PTR records...

    Unless your host delegates you control of the PTR records, you have to have them change them. Those are completely separate from the records you handle through WHM.

    It should also be mentioned that searching ARIN with your IP will usually yield your upstream host (provider) anyways.

    Also, a traceroute will often show enough information to determine both your server's geographic location and your hosting provider.
