Please Note: We can not change rDNS on our Shared Web Hosting Platform.

When you order a Virtual Private Server (VPS) with redIT you will be given an IPv4 Address and a IPv6 Address Range (a /112 block).

By default these address will have the Reverse DNS Entry set to something like:
spare-000-000.redithosting.co.uk

If you need to change the Reverse DNS (rDNS) entry for either of you IPv4 or IPv6 Address you will need to Open a Ticket under the DNS Support department stating both the IP Address that you would like to change and what you would like to change the record too.

For example:

192.168.1.1  to  example.com

Our network team will then check your records and update the DNS Zone file as needed or contact you to confirm your request.
