We’re looking to setup hosting for a subdomain only. The main domain is hosted and managed elsewhere (we don’t have control over it) and we’re looking for the quickest/best way to transfer one of the subdomains to our dreamhost account. We don’t have control over the DNS records, but can make requests for the subdomain be redirected.
www.mydomain.com (main site hosted elsewhere, will stay there)
mysub.mydomain.com (currently hosted elsewhere, but content to be transfered to DH)
-What is the best way of going about this setup in DH?
-should we setup a fully hosted domain called mydomain.com on DH, then add a subdomain called mysub.mydomain.com, the transfer the content?
-What about the DNS setup? What request should we make for the subdomain?
-Is it better just to setup a fully hosted domain called something else (ex. mydomain1.com) with a dedicated IP and then just have the mysub.mydomain.com subdomain DNS point to our DH mydomain1.com?
Thank you in advance!
