RWW A record

I am trying to set up an A record so I can access our company’s server with RWW by name instead of the need to enter the IP address. At this point I can access the server fine as I want to access as https://domainname/remote. Am I correct in assuming that all I need to do is setup a sub domain, say, then create an A record for that sub domain to point to the IP address

go to and login.
select Domains and then Manage domains.
Locate your domain and click “DNS” for the correct domain name.
the second section down allows you to add the custom A record.

You will actually access this server as https://remote.domainname because what you are actually doing with the A record is creating a sub-domain that is managed by the server at
