Hey @clayrisser,

According to the official documentation here under the limits section, Floating IPs currently do not support PTR (rDNS) records:

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on the DigitalOcean Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!
