    Are you hitting update zone or add PTR record? Sounds like you're doing everything right. Maybe send an e-mail to the admin(s)? Sorry, haven't used that program before. Usually PTR records look like x.x.x.x PTR FQDN. Don't forget the "." at the end of the FQDN (i.e., mydomain.com.).

    yes, i am hitting update zone button, and i am adding "." at the end of FQDN, no luck it reports error,i made contact to their support but no one responded before i post in this forum.

    Check out http://freedns.afraid.org/ but I'm not sure if they do PTR records or not.

    Are you actually authoritative for your reverse zone? It's pretty rare to be authoritative for your own reverse zone. Usually you will get the ISP/hosting company to set up your PTR record for the IP address they own on their auth servers. The PTR has to be set up on the authoritative name servers for the IP address, usually different than the domains authoritative name servers that you control. Your link to the screenshot doesn't work for me so I'm not sure what it showed, so maybe I'm missing something.
