Hosting ONLY a Sub Domain


#1

I host example.com on another hosting service, where I must keep it. I would like to host status.example.com on DreamHost, but I cannot determine how to add only status.example.com to my DreamHost setup.

Ideally, I’d like to simply set Apache to respond to requests for status.example.com. I’m willing to make DreamHost the DNS for example.com, and just point all A records to my other hosting service, if that’s necessary.

I’d appreciate any suggestions.

You might need to get the assistance of Dreamhost customer service / tech support to do such a thing, as I’m not sure the panel is set up for this.
