I have a website and domain name currently hosted and registered on GoDaddy (http://wildtroutstreams.com). For now, I’m happy to keep them there. I just signed up for a DreamHost VPS account, and am struggling a bit.
For now, I want to define a sub-domain (maps.wildtroutstreams.com) that points to a new directory on my DreamHost VPS.
I’ve already been on GoDaddy, and added a Host record for “maps” that points to the IP address for my DreamHost server (or at least the IP address that I use to log in for SSH). How do I create a directory on the VPS that will service the requests for maps.wildtroutstreams.com when they arrive? (Right now the only directory on the VPS is for a different domain which is registered with DreamHost).
When I try to “add a domain” it seems to want me to register it with DreamHost, or at least use the DreamHost nameservers, neither of which I want to do right now. I’ve scoured the wiki and googled my issue, and can’t seem to find any documentation for how to do this.
