Reverse DNS record, PTR, pointer record
Posted by Pacific Host on 04 December 2011 09:52 AM

The reverse DNS record is also known as the PTR record, pointer record, or IP resolvers.

A PTR record lets the receiver of your emails check for possible spoof emails, which will be treated as spam. Without this record, the receiver must rely on guessing if your email might be spam. When you have a PTR record, your emails have a better chance to deliver to my inbox instead of my spam folder.

Shared, Business and Reseller: We can create the PTR record for the sake of having the record. However, the PTR record will not function because even if you buy a dedicated IP, the IP will not apply to emails. We apologize for the inconvenience.

VPS, Hybrid, Dedicated Servers: We can create this record on your domains per request. Just contact us via phone, live chat, or open a ticket with our Support Department.
