What is reverse DNS in Linode?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 1:03 pm

PRO TIP: Reverse DNS in Linode is a process of resolving an IP address to its corresponding domain name. This can be used to determine the identity of a website or email server. However, it can also be used to track and spy on users.

Reverse DNS is a feature of Linode that allows you to lookup the IP address of a domain name through its DNS servers. This is useful if you want to access a site that is hosted on Linode but doesn’t have an IP address that you can easily lookup.
