Is it possible? If so, how would I go about doing that? I already have one server from dream host with one domain but plan to get another server but also would like to use the same domain.
How do you do it?
I don’t quite understand what you’re asking. Let’s say you have yoursite.com. You could create a sub-domain, site1.yoursite.com and use it with other server by editing the DNS on it. If you wanted to use yoursite.com/home or something and you wanted that to go to another server, no, that isn’t really possible.

How would i do that? Could I make both servers go like this:
if you mean server1.mysite.com will be going to one server
and server2.mysite.com will be going to a different one then probably yes. You can make custom DNS entries for any domains you have made by clicking on the [dns] in manage domains. I have never done this myself so I can’t give you any more directions than that.
Anyone know how to create the subdomain in Dreamhost?
in your control panel go to Domains==>Manage Domains and click on the add new domain/subdomain link.
Having clicked the ‘add new domain/sub-domain link’, just to make it a little clearer since it confused me for a while.
If you already host example.com then you enter wobbly.example.com in the first box. I suppose you could go further and add wibbly.wobbly.example.com although I haven’t tried that level of sub-domainery yet!
um, im not sure, but you might be looking for round robin dns
