Will DigitalOcean automatically create a PTR record?

I’ve renamed my droplet and add domain name. I’m still waiting for 2 days, but the PTR record doesn’t occur. How long it usually takes?

Hi there @gtamaz,

DigitalOcean will automatically create PTR records for your Droplets based on the names you give your Droplets in your DigitalOcean control panel.

The name of your Droplet must be a valid FQDN (Fully qualified domain name), so using as the Droplet name will create a PTR record, but ubuntu-s-4vcpu-8gb-fra1-01 or my-droplet will not.

Hope that this helps!
