Anyway, I was checking around on my new IP addresses that I got with my VPS to see if they were blacklisted anywhere, and it seems that doing a RDNS lookup on my main IP shows a nameserver I've never heard of. When I look up the domain it points to, the domain has expired. The other IP addresses on the account resolve to nothing at all.
Is there a way though WHM to fix this, or am I going to need to submit a ticket to my host? I'd rather do it on my own if I can, so at least I learn what's going on. I don't know enough to fool with DNS Zones and MX Entries without consulting greater minds first though. :)
The reverse DNS doesn't have to point to your host name to be valid. In fact, many hosts won't do that for you. (Others will.) It has to point to a host name that resolves back to the same IP address.
www.example.com -> 220.127.116.11
18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa -> vm100.examplehost.com
vm100.examplehost.com -> 22.214.171.124
In this case, vm100.examplehost.com is the canonical name for the IP address 126.96.36.199
