Banner DNS instead of IP

Can I have the ventrilo banner show my server's DNS name instead of the IP?

I took the time and effort to get a custom DNS name for my server, I'd like that displayed in the banner.

The server banners are not really optimized to be able to show the DNS you set for the page, except for the vertical HTML banner. The vertical HTML banner will show the DNS address if set instead of the IP. The reason the image banners don't replace the IP addresses with the DNS set is because of space limitations. In the majority of the time, the address would get cut off/overlap and be useless.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

I'm using the vertical HTML banner.. and I had thought I had set the DNS... apparently I didn't.

How do I set the DNS for the server so it displays properly in the HTML banner?

Disregard... apparently I'm unable to read and I didn't hit the right button when I saved DNS... it's pretty apparent how to do it.
