Want to configure OVH Reverse DNS? We can help you.
As part of our Server Management Services, we assist our customers with several OVH queries.
In this article, let us discuss OVH rDNS and how we can configure reverse DNS in the OVHcloud Manager.
OVH Reverse DNS on an IP
With DNS (Domain Name System) we can translate an easily memorized domain name into an IP address. This will allow the Internet to work.
It simply maps the IP address back to the domain name.
In order to begin, our Support Techs recommend having an A-record that resolves to an OVHcloud IP address.
Configure OVH Reverse DNS on an IP
Moving ahead, let us see how our Support Techs configure reverse DNS on an individual IP address.
To do so, we log in to the OVHcloud Manager.
Then on the left-hand column of the page we click the IP option.
Here we select the ellipses (…) button to the right of an IP.
Eventually we need to click the Modify the reverse option from the drop-down menu.
It will open a window where we need to enter the domain name corresponding with the IP address it points to in the A-record.
Finally, we click the Confirm button to save the changes.
If the change is success, we are all done.
However, if it is not, we check the A-record with the DNS host to ensure the proper configuration of the record.
