The new highly requested feature finally launched – we are glad to introduce you to bulk reverse DNS records for IPv4 and IPv6.
Listening to our customers’ requests, we are expanding the DNS Management panel in Host1Plus Client Area – from now on, the bulk upload feature for IPv4, and IPv6 rDNS records are available.
Contrary to DNS (the Internet’s Domain System) method, reverse DNS maps IP addresses back into their hostnames. To avoid ISPs blocking your email, it is crucial to own valid reverse DNS records.
Incoming emails from IP addresses, not identifying themselves with a PTR record in an rDNS zone, will be rejected by email servers and go directly to junk mail. To prevent this from happening, our customers can now benefit from even more convenient and time-saving rDNS record management. From now on, setting multiple pointer records at the same time is available in our Client Area.
To get started with the Reverse DNS Records management for IPv4 and IPv6 bulk upload, follow the brief guide below:
Step 1: Log into the Host1Plus Client Area (Heficed Terminal).
Step 2: Open the DNS Management panel and click on Reverse DNS Records.
Step 3: Select IPv4 or IPv6 bulk upload.
Step 4: Upload a text file with the following CSV format: address, content, TTL (TTL is an optional parameter). Set the file name to PTR.
Step 5: After the text file successfully uploaded, you will find the rDNS record status in your Task Journal (pending when it is being processed and completed when done). Keep in mind that you have to bulk upload reverse DNS records separately for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
This new time-efficient tool provides you with faster and more convenient reverse DNS records management, as the bulk upload function applies the records for multiple entries at the same time.
