rDNS : Should it point to hostname or site's domain name?
DNS has been a very confusing topic for me
Anyhow I have a server with hostname server.abc.com and IP 188.8.131.52. The host names I setup on registrar for this abc.com are ns1.abc.com, ns2.abc.com
My site domain is xyz.com and I changed the nameservers of this domain to ns1.abc.com and ns2.abc.com
Now 184.108.40.206 IP is also the dedicated IP of my site xyz.com i.e. if I enter this IP in browser, it opens my site xyz.com.
Now hotmail is sending my mails in JUNK. I noticed that rDNS of my IP 220.127.116.11 is pointing to some third party server (ppp.oooo.com)
I have to correct the reverse-DNS
Now should I set the reverse-DNS for my IP 18.104.22.168 to my server hostname (server.abc.com) OR my site's domain name (xyz.com).
Btw email header of hotmail says:
Received: from server.abc.com ([22.214.171.124]) by SNT0-MC3-F41.Snt0.hotmail.com with Microsoft...........
I am confused like hell. Please suggest if I should do use the hostname (server.abc.com) OR my site’s domain name (xyz.com) for reverse-DNS.
Thanks in advance.
