You can't, there can only be 1 PTR record per IP.

Why do you talk of WebSites??

The article i posted explained the PTR record.  You only have ONE PTR record per IP Address. you cant create more.
These are nothing at all to do with websites but are used mainly is email validation and spam prevention nowadays.
