How do i get rid of RDNS ?

Hi there, I setup linode wordpress from one click installer, my site is working fine but the problem is the RDNS is showing up for some pages instead of my actual site url.

All of my actual pages with my domain name are accessible but RDNS has created the same pages as duplicates on

Can you please tell me how can I fix it?

I do have an A record to the IP. https://paste.pics/IF82Q

Now when I try to replace the rdns with domain name nothing happens and I get this message:

"No match was found for 'pintodown.com'. Reverse DNS must have a matching forward entry. If your entry was added to your domain service recently, it may take some time for the changes to propagate."


Please tell me how to proceed.

If you have an A record pointing to your Linode, you can set up RDNS through the Cloud Manager. Instructions on setting up RDNS can be found on our website: How To Configure Your Linode for Reverse DNS (rDNS) | Linode

The current RDNS that you're seeing is the default one set up for all newly created Linodes. They are unique to the IP assigned to the Linode.
