If an IP address is unverified, how can I get it verified in DNS?    

What does it mean to be "unverified"

Thanks

If it's regarding reverse DNS unverified means a reverse DNS record of the hostname (in this case) couldn't be found.

Make sure you have a reverse DNS record for the host, or even that reverse DNS is configured at all.

Are you referring to email?  If so, then you need to a reverse dns like spravtek said to make sure that the recipient's server can verify that your domain name can be traced back to your ip address.  You will need a static ip address so that they can be sure you're not spamming or a spammer.
