    Normally the ISP/hoster who gave you the IP address has to create the PTR for you. Please contact them.

    Hi Falko,

    Thank for your anwser. Maybe you are right. I was thinking that when you have your own DNS, you could anwser to the reverse DNS.

    So here is what I try to accomplish.

    Godaddy account. Were I change the Name server to point to my own DNS. In this DNS creat the A, MX record, etc. Also create the PTR record.

    I was thinking that if I am now the name serveur that anwser to query I could also anwser to the reverse dns query.

    Am I wrong?

    See my previous post. Usually your hoster/ISP hosts the PTR record for you.
