  • Where to set up the public PTR record?


    I have just talked to my DNS provider, and they are telling me I have to talk to my ISP provider, for them to set up a PTR DNS record.

    I want to set up that record because of that validation that the receiving email servers do to check whether or not an email's source is a spammer.

    Is that so?, I mean, I thought it was my DNS provider the authoritative source to map my public ip to a hostname, like --->

    They tell me it is the owner of my IP who has to do so.

    Thanks in advance!

    The PTR is set on the IP address, so your ISP has to set it.
    You will need a matching A record pointing to the same address though for it to be completely valid.
