Setting up sub-domain in cPanel


(Erik Manger) #1

Hi,

I have a dedicated server from Namecheap and am trying to pair the forum.domain.com within cPanel.

How would I do this through DNS editor? I have a Digital Hosting plan hosting the forum itself.

Add an A record.

The subdomain is either forum or forum.example.com. (including the final dot always if you are using a full host), type = A, value = ip of your digital hosting VM, whatever the docker is running on.

forum IN A 192.168.1.200

It doesn’t seem to want to work… It’d been added via cPanel and hasn’t worked since…

You are using cloudflare, so DNS is no longer handled in cpanel. Log in
to cloudflare with your cloudflare account, DNS under that domain, add A
record, first box is forum, next box is the ip
