I think why any shared hosting provider will provide Dedicated IP Address, It will be waste of resource and also they will need to either sell hosting at very high price or only sell IP to needy customer.

rDNS can be possible with shared hosting If server is owned by you.

As you have your own VPS, it has the dedicated IP address and that is why you have setup the rDNS easily. That's great news!

On shared hosting service, single IP address is shared with the multiple accounts that is why it is not possible to setup the rDNS on them but if the shared hosting provider is providing you the dedicated IP address then it is possible.

No. It is not possible to setup rDNS on Shared Hosting as IP is not dedicated for you and it is shared with many others who are hosted their website on server.

It doesn't work like that.

rDNS is just like forward DNS but instead of taking a name and turning it into a number, it takes a number and turns it into a name. Hence rDNS or Reverse DNS.

rDNS doesn't care whether it's a shared server, dedicated IP, etc. The only reason having a dedicated IP would be 'important' in any sense is so that other clients on the same IP aren't put under a custom rDNS record that doesn't apply to them.

Realistically the only times rDNS are really necessary are when you're sending email from an IP - such as on a VPS, Dedicated, or Cloud Server.

but rDNS uses the servers IP address, so cant be used on shared hosting as everyone shares the same IP address

Not necessarily, our mail is setup to send your emails via the same IP your website sits on.
If you have a dedicated IP address, then you get your mail sent through that, and we will set your rDNS accordingly, but it must resolve forwards before we let you do it in reverse.

but that is on the mail servers IP, but the OP question is 'Is it possible to setup rDNS on Shared Hosting?' which is no as rDNS is set up on the IP which on shared hosting is a shared IP unless you have a dedicated IP address, which could have rDNS

OP already moved to a VPS, so a little rDNS here and some forwarding there, throw in a shared hosting base and presto, you've got hosting pie.

rDNS doesn't care if it's the main server IP, or if the IP is even bound to anything at all.

For example - we have rDNS set up on every IP we have allocated to us - whether or not it's actually routed or not.

rDNS needs a dedicated IP. so rDNS on shared hosting is not possible.

It's good that you upgraded your service and your issue is resolved.

It is possible.
If your host offers dedicated IPs and you run either cPanel or DirectAdmin, your host should be able to configure this for you!

RDNS can only be set up if you possess a dedicated IP, hence with VPS and dedicated servers it is possible to set up rdns. With shared hosting it is not possible because shared hosting clients share the IP.

If you have shared hosting and purchase a dedicated IP then you can set up rDNS, but on general shared hosting then you cannot setup rDNS
