Can I point a subdomain at a different nameserver than digitaloceans and still use a droplet on that subdomain?

I have a domain, example.com, but I dont want to change the nameservers to digitalocean, but i want to run my app from a droplet, on a subdomain that i point to both the foreign nameserver, and the digitalocean droplet. Is this possible, and how?
Thanks in advance.

Hi there @mikolaj73,

What I could suggest here is just adding an A record for your subdomain name to point to your Droplet’s IP address.

That way you would not have to make any changes to your Nameservers but just add an extra DNS entry under your current DNS provider.

Hope that this helps!

Bobby
