Hosting just one host


#1

Suppose I’ve example.com register with registrar X and manage my DNS myself on one of my server. Nevertheless I want to host dh.example.com on dreamhost.

Is it possible? I tried to add a subdomain for which DH is not managing the DNS for the domain zone, but it keeps saying I can’t since I don’t have permission.

Please explain.

Thank you

I believe that “subdomains” follow the “domain” - you would need to set a custom DNS record up on the DNS server that manages “domain” in order to effect the DNS of “subdomain”.

As you found, the Dreamhost Panel does not have a way to “host” a subdomain for a domain it does not control DNS for.
