How to delegate nameservers in ARIN?

If you are planning to lease your subnet (sometimes also called as IP range or prefix) on Heficed’s Additional IPs section, you would first need to change the delegation for this prefix to Heficed’s nameservers, which would enable rDNS (Reverse DNS) to be controlled via Terminal.
