I have a problem in resolving the domain and found out that there is a issue with dns settings.

I wanted to configure Reverse DNS for my virtual dedicated server(windows). My isp is godaddy.

How do i know whether my server dns settings are correctly configured?

I have Plesk with windows server.

Please kindly help me.

Your should forward all your requests about reverse zone to your ISP support (GoDaddy). They are responsible for reverse DNS zone.

If you set the Reverse DNS (also called PTR or pointer) first then use this tool you can check if it's correctly set: DNSWatch

Type in the IP address you want to check the Reverse DNS for in the box under DNS Lookup / IP lookup.

At the top of the page it tells you which Servers looked up the Reverse DNS for you.

At the bottom look at this part:

Answer is the current Reverse DNS entry. Bear in mind it can take a day to update if you change it.
