PTR Record

While in the Master zone your hostname is pointed to an IP address, using the Master Reverse zone allows you to point an IP address to a hostname.
In the Reverse DNS zone, you need to use a PTR Record. The PTR Record resolves the IP address to a domain/hostname. An A Record should exist for every PTR Record.

The PTR record has the following look in your ClouDNS Control Panel:

Host: Type: Points to: TTL
1 PTR yourdomain.com 1 Hour

How to add it?

Go to the Control Panel of your Master Reverse Zone and click on "Add new record". Type, as follow:
Type: PTR
Host: Depending on the zone name (Only one PTR record is allowed per host)
Points to: yourdomain.com

Example:
For IP address 127.0.0.1 with Master Reverse Zone 1.0.0.127.in-addr.arpa
Type: PTR
Host: @
Points to: your(sub.)domain.com

For IP subnetwork 127.0.0 with Master Reverse Zone 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa
Type: PTR
Host: 1
Points to: your(sub.)domain.com

Type: PTR
Host: 2
Points to: your(sub.)domain.com

and so on.

After creating the PTR record, you need to ask the IP owner to delegate the management of the IP to our servers.
