Question

Is it possible to edit my PTR(?) record as I can't see it?

Posted September 1, 2014 14.3k views

I can get access to my site via my ip address or domain name (less the ‘WWW’). If I type my domain name with the sub-domain 'WWW’ I lose access.

Okay just found out I need to add a cname record to remedy this, but I can’t find any way of just editing my PTR (wtf is that?) record.

It does say in my DNS information
“To update your PTR record please update your Droplet’s hostname through the control panel.”

REALLY I’ve looked and can see no way of doing this?

In the DO control panel clink on the droplet you want to rename.
Click on settings.
Click on rename.
Type new name and click rename button.

Hello,

All you need to do is go to control panel and click the following:

DNS > CLICK DOMAIN.COM VIEW > ADD RECORD > SELECT “A” > www to ip

This will allow you to go to www.* and visit your site.
