How can I create a PTR (Reverse DNS) for own public IP allocated in AWS

If a reverse DNS record is associated with an Elastic IP address, the Elastic IP address is locked to your account and cannot be released from your account until the record is removed[2]

To create a reverse DNS record, see link,
