Subdomain web site


#1

I have my own DNS server.

How can I just host a web site ??

I have try to add a A record on my DNS server(the host name is not prefix as www.domain.com, it is game.domain.com)

And then I try to add a new domain in the panel by the hostname(game.domain.com)

However, the panel return error (Can’t add domain: you don’t have permission to add to domain.com.)

What is the problem??

Thanks!!

I had the same problem. You need to add your parent domain: domain.com to the Manage Domains panel and then add the subdomain game.domain.com.

On your DNS server, add a subdomain in the config and setup the A record in your zone file to point to the dreamhost IP listed in the DNS settings for the subdomain.

I just tried it this way and things seemed to work ok.

I hope this helps.
