Reverse DNS PTR records not working

Hi,

I’ve added a PTR record to my DNS settings for my domain to for reverse DNS look-ups but this is not working and I cannot work out why.

E.g. IP of server: 1.2.3.4

Record type: PTR
Name: example.com
Content: 4.3.2.1.in-addr.arpa

Is it possble to get this working on the free tier?

No, PTR is something for Enterprise plans.

Also, you can’t just add the record and expect it to work, that can only be done by the owner of the IP address block. But again, you need an Enterprise plan anyhow.
