I ahve a fixed ip address provided by my ISP and I am using this for my sever running ubuntu 9.10. I have noticed that if I do an iplookup for most ip address i see it's hostname also. For example if i lookup 18.104.22.168 (which is google.com) here -->http://ip-lookup.net/index.php
- i see the hostname is gv-in-f103.1e100.net - but when i lookup my ip address i see nothing
From the command line if I do hostname or hostname -f or hostname --fqdn i see my hostanme which i setup when install ubutnu as an open ssh sever and I also added to hosts.
My question is what controls the display of your hostname to the web?
Is it me or my ISP?
