Host name - can it be changed?

I got ADSL today, so far its been fast, and totally painless to set up and use. Many thanks PlusNet!

One issue though, I checked my site's visitor logs today, and my visit shows the host name as:

username.plus.com

I'm not comfortable with my username being revealed so totally in the host name. Is there any way to change this?

Thanks,

Donovan

Host name - can it be changed?

The hostname can be set to one of four things.

1: The current <username>.plus.com style

2: Remove rDNS totaly so it remian as an IP and doesn't resolve

3: Changed to rDNS to a domain name (only to a domain you you host with PlusNet on the domain control panel)

4: It can be set to ip1.ip2.ip3.ip4.plus.com . IE the IP is prepended to the host plus.com

Thanks for the fast response Smiley

I'd like to have it remain an IP address. How would i go about doing that?

Goto the link:contact us page and start a new query.

Then the path to follow is

  • Technical Support (Except Connection problems - See below)

    • Static IP / Reverse DNS Setup

      • Change my Reverse DNS (PTR) configuration


You will see on that page what they can be changed to. IF you can't change to a no rDNS, then request the ip_ip_ip_ip.plus.com method.
