How to configure subdomain when having two different host providers?


(Mauro) #1

I have my domain name registered with GoDaddy, and I use Inmotion Hosting to host my WordPress site, and I’m planning to get a new VPS on Digital Ocean to host Discourse, but I have difficulties understanding how and where I need to configure the DNS settings?

I’m planning to keep my site mydomain.com, and I’m looking to host Discourse alongside my site as forum.mydomain.com, and pointers will be really useful.

Thanks,

Set the A record for forum.mydomain.com to the IP address of the Digital Ocean VPS.

Lest @mpalmer’s answer not be understandable, in spite of its clarity, GoDaddy doesn’t care what IPs you tell it to point to, so you just need to figure out how you did that when you did it for your Wordpress site. :slight_smile:
