I'm new to operating a website and I'm leasing a virtual private server
(VPS) from GoDaddy.   I'm paying for cPanel / WHM as well.   It's running
CentOS 6.8 Final.  I'd like to setup reverse DNS but I'm having trouble.
I'm not 100% sure how to do it.   I have my hostname,
and there's two IP addresses assigned to that hostname,
and   I was trying to setup a round robin kinda thing but I
don't think I set it up correctly.

Anyway, I have which has the IP of   and
then I have that has the IP address of   I
wanted to know if someone could look over what I have so far and let me
know if it's correct and how I should proceed.

So, in the /var/named directory, I create a file

The contents of are as follows:
@       IN SOA (
                                        2016071705      ; serial
                                        1D              ; refresh
                                        1H              ; retry
                                        1W              ; expire
                                        3H )            ; minimum        IN      NS         IN      NS

104     IN      PTR
44      IN      PTR

Does that look correct?   If not, how should I change it?   If so, what's
the next step?   Thank you for your help!
