i’m not to familiar with DNS setup so i need some help. i have a domain set up on dreamhost and i need to set up a subdomain to point to an IP address outside of dreamhost. right now i currently have a subdomain set up to redirect to the IP, so when someone types in the subdomain in their browser it will forward/redirect them to that IP but the IP address shows in the browser’s address bar.
how do i set up a custom DNS to point that subdomain to that IP address? i’m not really familiar with DNS records and i know i have to set up a DNS record but i don’t know exactly what to do.
can anyone help me out, step by step?
also, when i set up a new DNS record should i remove the subdomain i already set up so it doesn’t conflict with the custom record?
thanks in advance for any help
