It looks like you are confusing "to" and "from".
The above would only allow access *to* your server *from* remote clients 
whose IP address, when resolved by a reverse DNS lookup done by your 
server, matches a hostname like ".*\.dev\.premonitionx\.com".
In other words, as done above, it is the *clients* which are expected to 
be in the domain "".
