Change reverse DNS entry from username to an IP or anonymous name

Hi
Does anyone know how I get my reverse DNS lookup changed from <myname>.plus.com to something without my name in it.
Thanks
Richard

I can sort that for you, would you just like it changing to IP.plus.com ?

Yes, I have had this done and you just need to raise a ticket and they'll do it for you. Can either be custom rdns (if you have a domain) or they can set it up a generic (yourip).plus.com
Edit; just seen the reply from Chris so if you get him to do it that might be the quickest way.

Nope, you won't need to do anything. It takes around 24 hours to update but I've just put that through now.
