How to configure the reverse DNS of a failover IP

Reviewed on 10 July 2023Published on 29 July 2021

Failover IP addresses allow you to have several IP addresses with your server. This allows you to assign IP addresses to different websites or to virtual machines. Your IP failover can be routed at any time to your servers in just a few minutes by using our Account Management console or through our API. By switching your failover IP addresses from one server to another, the hosted services remain available without reconfiguring the IP address.

You can add a failover IP address(es) for each server according to the offer and your service level.

  1. From your Scaleway console click Server > Network configuration. The list of your failover IPs and IP blocks displays.

  2. Click Edit reverses. The list of your reverse DNS settings displays.

  3. Enter the new reverse DNS record and click Update


    Make sure to have a valid A record for forwarding DNS configured and pointing to your IP address before changing the reverse DNS of it.
