    I will like to find out if my PTR record is programmed correctly. I have the following configuration for me DNS server but when doing reverse lookup on the IP its giving me DNS name + the zone name.

    [[email protected] ~]# host
    Using domain server:
    Aliases: domain name pointer mail.bitco.co.za.0.0.10.in-addr.arpa.

    Any reson for the zone to be displaying after the domain name for the PTR Record:

    $TTL 3600
    @ IN SOA ns1.bitco.co.za. jaco.bitco.co.za. (
    2014021206 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
    7200 ; refresh, seconds
    540 ; retry, seconds
    604800 ; expire, seconds
    86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

    0.0.10.in-addr.arpa. 3600 NS ns1.bitco.co.za.
    0.0.10.in-addr.arpa. 3600 NS ns2.bitco.co.za.
    9 86400 PTR mail.bitco.co.za

    Am I doing any thing wrong?

    Found my problem.

    On the PTR record that gets added on ISPConfig just add a "." after the domain name and it stops it from adding the zone name.
