In DNS, the forward lookup zone has the purpose ton give you an ip address for the requested domain - example: you type and the dns client asks the dns server for this domain. Sometimes later you hopefully get the ip address.

The reverse lookup zone is for the other way - if you have an ip address and you use tracert to enumerate the routing path, your dns server looks into his database and gives you the domain name (if available). Reverse lookup zones are necessary in large, segmented ad infrastructure, especially if smallband network connections are in place.

I am not clear as to what you are asking, would you mind explaining exactly what information you need to know or describe the problem in more detail. Are you asking what is a reverse lookup Zone? Or something else? If you would not mind clarifying this for me, I will do my best to help. Thanks

I can't find my reg key for this program. Have the upgrade code but it does't work without 2's key.

There are some programs which I remember using in similar circumstances to recover my original license key by using the upgrade key to do a reverse lookup, essentially. Those are the key words: reverse lookup. Use them in Google, along with recover product key.

When searching Google using these terms put each phrase in quotes, which forces the search engine to find an exact match to said phrases. This should result in links to forums or other user information resources which can guide you one step at a time through the process.

I cant update offsite dns setting

Your first step in setting up DNS for your domain is create some A records, or host records, that point to servers that you are hosting resources (like a website). So, for example, let's say you are hosting a website on a server with IP You'll create an A record for 'www' (without the quotes) to point to This way, when someone goes to, they'll be sent to your web server.

I hope this helps!
