To add a PTR record in the GoDaddy DNS Manager, you need to do the following:

  • In the Zone Field Editor go down to the TXT(text) Zone
    • Click Add SPF Record

A window will open with 4 tabs (Inbound, Outbound, The well hidden 'PTR' and Outsourced)

  • Go to the PTR tab
  • Check Include PTR and add your public IP

You need to setup an A record pointing notification.pokemoncraft.com to This can be done from the GoDaddy hosting control panel under DNS.

That is correct. It will say non-authoritative answer unless the DNS server that you are querying is the authoritative server. –  mrdenny Jan 7 '11 at 12:18
Non-authoritative answer is completely normal. It means that you got a reply from a cache, and not directly from the Authorative server. –  pehrs Jan 7 '11 at 12:19
yes it appears that it is. When I do an nslookup for the IP address, I get back the correct domain name. –  mrdenny Jan 7 '11 at 13:17
