Can I have mydomain.com on one host and subdomain.mydomain or mydomain.com/folder on another?
You have to set a record for the subdomain and point it to another server.
Contact Domain registrar for support. they can do it easily.
Yea, just point ur a records for the subdomin.
Thanks. You guys mean contact the registrar who happens to be host A to point a subdomain to another host? I mean, what information do I have to get from whom?
You should be able to point it yourself. Who is your domain register?
GoDaddy, also a host since I have space with them, but it sucks. So the idea was to have a main section of the website with them, another with someone else.
I can help you later via team view if you want or just google it, it's really easy.
Thanks, I'm gonna try and come back if I can't!
Am I in the twilight zone or somewhere?
Dafaq does this have to do withe the op?
On a separate host?
I doubt you can do mydomain.com/folder on a separate host, without a redirect, but apparently you can with subdomain.mydomain.com.
However, I can't figure it out. I created a subdomain at GoDaddy, but there's no other option there, where would I go for setting a record as it was said above?
Hi guys, I had no luck. It's not working. I got into the GD cpanel, created a subdomain, pointed to the IP I see in another host's CPanel, gave it time to propagate, but then nothing. To be honest, I'm not even sure what I should see, if that is the IP it should point to, any tips? I'd be happy to Google it, but I'm not sure what I would be looking for...
Thanks for any useful input!
You need to have a dedicated IP for the second host and use A Record in host entries at domain registrar to point that subdomain to your dedicated IP.
Ah, I didn't get that, I need a dedicated IP...That's too bad.
No alternative, right?
That's how I do it and it's easy to get to work. There might be alternatives I am not aware of, but as far as I know you can not have separate nameservers for subdomains.
you might be able to ghetto-rig something with no-ip
Not sure what that means, care to elaborate? Thanks!
A more logical approach would be load balancing or a CDN. I'm not familiar with any advantages for you to host your subdomain on a different server. If it's for the SEO IP BS you've been reading about, seriously, don't bother is my advice.
well, any dynamic dns should work really. it basically will allow your dynamic ip to act as a static one.
Separate names with a comma.
