Discourse on cloud while wordpress on shared hosting?

I have a wordpress Site with woocommerce hosted on simple cPanel Based host. I am looking to host discourse on Amazon.
Is this possible; mysite.com points to wordpress and forums.mysite.com should point to discourse?

If yes how do I go about. Any specific steps I need to look for while editing the subdomains.

Yes. Just add an A name for forum that links to your IP in the DNS settings.


Private IP or Public IP

You add the a-record to a subdomain attached to the public IP address.
