Hello, all

The support for PTR records for IPv6 addresses was actually added a while back. By default, each Droplet with IPv6 enabled will be configured with a single IPv6 address. This is the address that will be used for any PTR records that will be generated for domains pointing at your server. Like with IPv4, if the hostname given to the Droplet is an FQDN, the PTR record will be generated automatically.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
