Domain w/ IP reverse lookup

I have a couple of domains registered from before, and now I'm interested in getting reverse lookup for these domains (I only have vhost-forwarding-services for them now).

Anyone got suggestions where to buy the reverse-lookup services for the cheapest price (and best service).

That is, I would need my own IP-address to bind the domain names in a primary DNS.

I don't even know if it exist companies for these kind of services? Hopefully you can help me.
Thanks in advance!

IP addresses come from your ISP unless you are *huge*. Whoever owns the block of IPs is in charge of reverse lookups, so you need at least some cooperation from your ISP. Assuming your ISP cooperates, there are two options:

1) you tell them what names you want, they put those names in their reverse lookup zone.

2) they delegate a reverse-lookup zone to your name server, and you provide the zone file.

I use #2, because it gives me more control (I can reassign things more easily) and I was running a name server anyway. Your choice may well be dictated by your ISP's policies.
