PTR

Posted September 7, 2013 5.3k views
If I set the PTR of a droplet as s.domain.com, then do I need to add an A-record (IP of the droplet) for s.domain.com from my domain control panel? Or don't I need anything more to do in this case?

DigitalOcean doesn't currently forward confirm PTR records, but yes, you will need a matching A record if you wish for it to work properly. (www.nsa.gov is an awesome PTR to set up :) )
You don't have to but it's recommended that you do add an A record that matches the PTR record.
