I’m hosting a site on another web host. I want to point a subdomain to DreamHost, such as: --> other hosting provider --> dreamhost

How do I set up the dreamhost portion of this scenario?

Go ahead and set up the subdomain here. If it doesn’t immediately let you create, then trying to create just, and then create the subdomain.

You’ll then have to get the IP address of your server, so go to the panel here and click on Account Status. Do a host lookup of based upon the webserver MACHINE name they tell you. Use that IP address to manually add the subdomain’s A Record to the DNS at your other host.


I came to learn.
