DNS and Nameservers
I have a domain with NameSilo and the Name Servers point over to my KnowHost account. Inside of WHM I have been managing my DNS zone file.
Now I have added a record for the subdomain forum.mydomain.com and that has an IP address that points over to Digital Ocean.
The website I installed at that subdomain works fine. However, I need it to be able to send emails so I signed up for Elastic Mail and added all of the necessary records for this subdomain right in Digital Ocean. Every single one of the checks failed....
Digital Ocean is telling me “You need to update your nameservers with your domain registrar for the records below to take effect.”
So where do I create and manage DNS records for a subdomain??
