Weird reverse DNS response?
Just curious to know how\why this happens. When I lookup up the name www. melectronics. ch I get the answer of IP 188.8.131.52.
Should I not then get that hostname returned when I query the IP address. Instead, when I enter IP address I am returned the name www. singandwin. ch and not the original name I used to get the IP address.
Can somebody please make me wise?
Can somebody also make me wise as to why this forum would stupidly blocks the posting of URLs and images which makes this hard to demonstrate?

"www.singandwin.ch" is a CNAME for "www.melectronics.ch". Why the host servers "migze100.migros.ch/migze104.migros.ch" chose to use the CNAME in the PTR record is unknown.
