I have a domain that’s hosted with another hosting company (targeted to Chinese market, would be unwise to host in US), and I now want to make a English version of the site on a subdomain which is ideally hosted in US (DreamHost, of course). Now my question is how do I do this?
I tried to add a subdomain directly into my DH account without adding the primary domain.com first. It rejected me by stating that I had to add the primary domain first.
Another option is that I change the name servers to ns1.dreamhost.com but then the primary A record would be uneditable.
Any way I can accomplish what I want? Seems a mission impossible.
