[SOLVED] I have successfully solved this issue. This what I do

Clidk droplet -> your droplet name -> Setting -> Rename
Rename your host to "domain.tld"
important thing is ----> we MUST WAIT for DNS update.

I just renamed my droplet to FQDN, e.g. and now it works, i guess:
~$ host domain name pointer
Reverse DNS is automatically configured for your IPs based on the hostname that you provide for your virtual server.

Thanks, changed the dns of my customer and forgot to change the name of the droplet. All the best from France !

hostname that we provide in as in running hostname in linux or the name of the droplet?

The name of the droplet during creation.
This doesn't seem to work.

willem@navelpluis:~$ host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Ditto, not working for myself either.
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
Are you going to fix this? That's the only thing that prevent me to use your hosting.
was this suppose to be fixed? Mine comes back not found.
