How do I point a blog subdomain to another host?
I have a blog for my website that I’m hosting on another provider using WordPress - http://theyfindmeblog.peterscheffer.com/
What I would like to do is have my DigitalOcean subdomain “how” point to that URL without having to redirect to it. I have created a CNAME to point to it for my theyfind.me droplet -
how : theyfindmeblog.peterscheffer.com.
But the only way I can get it to work at the HostGator end is to create a redirect. Because otherwise HostGator is seeing a request for how.theyfind.me. I don’t want a redirect, I want how.theyfind.me to show the WordPress blog on the other host.
I’m running Ubuntu, and have Meteor using port 80 on my Droplet.
