Domain and hosting with Namecheap, but point subdomain to DigitalOcean?

Posted April 29, 2016 10k views


I have a domain and hosting plan with Namecheap; this means I can’t use their Advance DNS but rather I have to use CPanel’s Zone editor to add any zone records.

I have tried to create a subdomain, say, and point it to DigitalOcean IP by adding an “A” record in CPanel.

But when I open, I get a sorry page from CPanel. If I open the IP address, I can access DIgitalOcean droplet.

Any idea on how to overcome this problem?
