Can you add a PTR record for my server?

The quick answer is that unfortunately, no, we can't. Read on for the more specific explanation.

PTR records are DNS records that resolve an IP address to a hostname. This is important to understand as most other DNS records always resolve hostnames to IP addresses or other hostnames.

In order to resolve an IP address to a hostname, the DNS resolver has to resolve the IP address. This happens at the provider of the IP space.

Because we don't provide web hosting we also can't provide you with PTR records. They have to be managed by your hosting provider, and many hosting providers have dedicated DNS interfaces for exactly this purpose.


We offer DNS that resolves hostnames to IP addresses or other hostnames but don't offer DNS that maps IP addresses to hostnames. This is the job of your ISP or hosting provider.

If you set up external hosting, you can update the nameservers for your domain host in your iwantmyname dashboard. Once you login to your account, click on update nameservers on the domain's page you want to set up.
