How to change the reverse DNS entry for the server IP address

Sometimes it is required that the server's IP address is resolved back to a specific domain name request via reverse DNS lookup.

You can set an arbitrary domain for the IP address on the VPS server by using VMmanager

.

The setting should be performed in the virtual server control panel VMmanager https://vmm.realhost.pro
