How can I setup subdmain without changing nameserver?

Posted May 19, 2018 2.4k views

I have a blog Education Bhaskar on another server. I want to setup subdomain i.e. on DO. It is required to change DO nameservers to setup submain or domain but as main domain is on another server, there are nameservers of that server. Can you please help.

No, you’re not required to change nameservers to DigitalOcean. What you need to do, is to create an A record using your domain’s register control panel. You need to point answers to your Droplet IP address. Exact steps for creating A records depends on your domain register, but you should be able to find instructions on their website.
