I realize that, I thought it would be a good idea to straighten out the DNS first.
There are multiple IPs on the server and multiple domains on the server.
188.8.131.52 is server.dancingmokey.com
184.108.40.206 is www.dancingmokey.com
with a images.dancingmokey.com subdomain
220.127.116.11 is phoebesfriends.com
I still have .21 and .22 addresses open for future use
So I am asking the company that assigned them (gigenet) for the following:
I need PTR records for:
18.104.22.168 as server.dancingmokey.com
22.214.171.124 as dancingmokey.com
126.96.36.199 as phoebesfriends.com
I realize I'm chasing down multiple issues, it's hope it's morally rewarding helping people like me
