Reverse DNS name on my static IP

Hello, I have recently obtained a static IP. However, it reverse resolves to myusername.PLUS.COM, which is not ideal for privacy while browsing.

I see that others have had success in getting the reverse DNS name changed to something like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.ip.PLUS.COM, which would be ideal.

I raised a ticket to do this, as was suggested in other posts. However, the response I received is

"Unfortunately reverse DNS is not something that we currently support. however you may find additional support around this subject on our community support forum."

 

which is less than satisfactory. Can anyone connect me with someone who knows what I am talking about? 🙂

Yep it'll need the PTR record removed on your static IP, which I believe it is something PlusNet can do?

We've actioned this last night so the rDNS should update by tonight

I hope this helps
