Subdomain of domain that is hosted elsewhere


#1

I want to host a subdomain of my domain here at dreamhost. So I made an A record to the IP of my hosting, but when i tried to add ‘subdomain.domain.ext’ the panel errors:
" Can’t add domain: you don’t have permission to add to domain.ext."

Is there any way in doing this?

You can add subdomains in the control panel.

I know, but I get that error from te panel when I’m trying to add ‘subdomain.domain.ext’.

‘domain.ext’ isn’t hosted at dreamhost.

Yeah, but it takes a bit of a workaround. Check out this previous Forum post to see how to accomplish this:

And if you’re nitpicky, you can delete the hosting for the domain after you’ve added it. This way you don’t have a spurious/unused domain hosting to confuse you later.
