POINTER (PTR) Record

Pointer (PTR) records are used for configuration of Reverse DNS. View the full tutorial for configuration of Reverse DNS. PTR records must be configured within Reverse DNS domains.

Assume the domain “147.94.208.in-addr.arpa.” you would create a PTR record with the following values:

  • Name: 129
  • Value: mx2.dnsmadeeasy.com. (Note the dot (.) following the host name)

The end result would be that the reverse DNS for the IP 208.94.147.129 will resolve to mx2.dnsmadeeasy.com.
