I’ll try to be the most explicit as I can.
(It is not always easy to explain well what one wishes to carry out when a subject is not well controlled… And I know what I speak about since I also make support. But on AS400 )
Ok let’s do it
I have a box with 10 Ips. For example from 10.00 to 10.09
The IP 10.01 is a shared IP that hold all my/customer domains
If I launch the cmd host xx.xx.10.00 up to 09 I see unknown.domain.com
To do that I’ll use reverse DNS. So I need a foward record + a reverse record (right ?) : a “A” record and a “PTR” record.
first, does it sound good to have my box name (padawan.carat-hosting.com on ip 10.00) defined as “A” record ?
Ok I can create some “A” records for all the IP foward to unknown.carat-hosting.com, but for the shared one is there some impacts ?
I mean do I have to create in DNS management a “A” record for all IP for my domain carat-hosting with these informations “unknown.carat-hosting.com” “A” “xx.xx.10.01” up to 10.10 and then in IP management set the reverse DNS with unknown.carat-hosting.com ?
Is there an impact for the shared ip that hold all the domains to do that ?
Does it sound good for you to do that ?
What is your experience and what is you advised about Reverse DNS and box name ?
Thanks for yor help
