What kind of connection are you on?  If you're on broadband, you're probably stuck.  If you're on leased line, contact your ISP and update the records.  Shouldn't really matter unless the reverse DNS entry doesn't have a corresponding forward entry.

I agree with above, for contacting the one who provided the name and the one who is providing DNS services.

> so wat issue ??

The only one I can think of offhand is the email issue of defending against spam by doing a reverse lookup. That would apply if you need mail services for that domain. Web pages typically do not do reverse lookups.
