Can I do this manually or do I have to submit a support ticket for this?

[SOLVED] I have successfully solved this issue. This what I do <br> <br>Clidk droplet -> your droplet name -> Setting -> Rename <br>Rename your host to “domain.tld” <br>important thing is ----> we MUST WAIT for DNS update. <br> <br>

I just renamed my droplet to FQDN, e.g. host.domain.com and now it works, i guess: <br>~$ host 198.211.121.70 <br>70.121.211.198.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer host.domain.com. <br>

Reverse DNS is automatically configured for your IPs based on the hostname that you provide for your virtual server.
