Hello all, another quick domain question:
I have a domain with a bunch of subdomains on it. The main www domain is hosted at Dreamhost. One of the subdomains I want to point to an account hosted elsewhere, as forum.mydomain.com
I need to set up a CNAME record for this domain, right? The problem is, I don’t seem to have the URL to put inside the CNAME record.
I have the URL of the website host that is running my forum, but that’s not working. I also have the IP address (188.8.131.52) of my account on said host-- but this won’t work either, because the Dreamhost Control Panel says “Invalid: “202” is not a valid TLD for a domain!”
I looked in the wiki but couldn’t find any help. I guess my question is: what are the steps to creating a subdomain that forwards to an external host?
thanks for any help!
