The reverse DNS (PTR) is used for proper email delivery. In order to verify your web host has this configured properly, you will want to follow these steps.

WHM -> Server Configuration -> Terminal

1. Enter the following with your IP address:

host 123.123.123.123

You should see something similar to this:

456.456.456.456.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer host.xf2addons.com.

2. Enter the following:

host host.xf2addons.com

You should see something similar to this:

host.xf2addons.com has address 123.123.123.123

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
