Reverse DNS (rDNS/PTR) in Plesk

I'm running Plesk 10 on a VPS account and I can't figure out how to associate a host name with the PTR record. All I see is options for ip address and sub-domain.

    I haven't used Plesk on a VPS, however I may be able to help.

    If your VPS provider allows reverse DNS changes via Plesk, maybe this link will help.

    If that does not work, and/or they do not allow reverse DNS changes via Plesk, then you will need to ask your VPS provider to update the PTR records for your namespace.
