If you don't have cPanel, follow the information provided in this post.

How to verify Reverse DNS (PTR) is correctly set using SSH:

Enter the following using your forum's IP address:

dig -x 123.123.123.123 +short

You should get back your forum's domain:

host.domain.com.

Enter the following domain for your forum:

dig host.domain.com +short

You should get back your forum's IP address:

123.123.123.123

Hover over the cursor will indicate:

"Contact the person responsible for the ... and request that they update the records"

This can be ignored as it's purpose is to provide information about setup.
