How to configure reverse DNS on Dedibox

Reviewed on 19 September 2023Published on 26 May 2021

Reverse DNS is the opposite of classic “forward” DNS, and maps an IP address to a hostname. This can be useful if, for example, you want to send emails from your server. If you are using the default reverse (*, you may experience problems with deliverability of your mails and during the subscription of certain tools like JMRP.

  • You have an account and are logged into the Dedibox console
  • You created a corresponding A record for your reverse DNS at least 24 hours ago
  1. From the console, click Server in the top menu, then select Server list.

  2. Click Manage next to the relevant server.

  3. Under Network, click Edit Reverses.

  4. Enter the new reverse DNS of your IP (generally this corresponds to your hostname) and click Update.

    Your reverse DNS is now updated.
