Question Whitelisting specific domain for rDNS

I use the DynDNS service to keep track of my home server IP.

The problem here is that when I try to access my web server via my domain name, the connection is refused. If I first obtain the ip adress (via nslookup), I can get access.

I checked the reverse dns lookup and the results dont match. Perhaps this can be a problem browsing. żDoes the browser or the OS perform the rdns check?

Is there a way to whitelist some specific domain in order to skip that check, so I dont have to find out the IP address every time i want to access my home server.

Thanks in advance, LQ Community.
