      Customer Support doesn't understand this request during conversation on Customer Service and saying this is not Globe scope which is unbelievable reply of Customer Service.

      I Called Customer service 10x some are saying this can be processed within 24hours unfortunately until now no one can solved.

          Hi kenofglobe

          Perhaps you can help me to resolve this issue? PTR Record of my Static IP.

            Scope of public rDNS if you renting STATIC IP,

             

            Forward DNS (A Record) = Subscriber Scope, can be add to your purchased Domain Name record.

            Reverse DNS (PTR Record) = ISP scope under APNIC helpful to identify/whois your IP Address

             

            Globe Technical Support Support/Administrator should provide this for you because you paying it for P770/month this records are standard to associate to the static ip that you get.

             

            Usage:

            The most common uses of the reverse DNS include:

            1. The original use of the rDNS: network troubleshooting via tools such as traceroute, ping, and the "Received:" trace header field for SMTP e-mail, web sites tracking users, CCTV Remote Connection (especially on Internet forums), etc.

             

            2. A forward-confirmed reverse DNS (FCrDNS) verification can create a form of authentication showing a valid relationship between the owner of a domain name and the owner of the server that has been given an IP address. While not very thorough, this validation is strong enough to often be used for whitelisting purposes, since spammers and phishers usually cannot achieve forward validation when they use zombie computers to forge domain records.

             

            3. System logging or monitoring tools often receive entries with the relevant devices specified only by IP addresses. To provide more human-usable data, these programs often perform a reverse lookup before writing the log, thus writing a name rather than the IP address.
