Please explain IRC custom hostname to me (Docean+GoDaddy)
How are you all!
I have a VPS from digital ocean.
I have a domain name from GoDaddy.com.
I use the VPS to connect to IRC using terminal based clients such as irssi/weechat etc.
My hostname on any irc server will appear as firstname.lastname@example.org, where I’d rather it be email@example.com, which is supposed to be possible.
I did some reading and I know a PTR/reverse A record needs to be created, although not on GoDaddy and no in Docean it can be created.
So some say a PTR record for your droplet is being created automatically, although I couldn’t find any.
I’d appreciated explanation on how this works exactly, and what steps needs to be taken by me so I can get this custom hostname up and running.
