Remove Plusnet username from Reverse DNS lookup

Hi all.

Would it be possible to amend the reverse DNS entry on my static IP address so that it doesn't display my Plusnet username?

(from looking at previous posts on this subject I can see it can be changed to something generic like username.plus.com - if this can still be done that'd be great)

Thanks in advance!

Nathan.

Hey @snathe1978 I can get this actioned it can be:

  • Your username.plus.com like yours is
  • Static IP
  • Your domain, so long as it is pointing to your static

Which one would you like?

Re: Remove Plusnet username from Reverse DNS lookup

Hi @willcutforth 
Happy to go with the second option you mentioned, just want to get my actual user name removed!

(Just to check - will this be the string "staticip.plus.com" or "[my actual static ip address].plus.com"?)

Thanks

Nathan.
