How to add sub-domain without using DO DNS?

I only want to use sub-domain for a droplet and I am already using Cloudflare for DNS manager.

and I have already added A record to Cloudflare DNS manager, but it’s still not working.

Is there any additional settings or changes required from DigitalOcean?

Hi there @arzvak,

Pointing the A record of your subdomain name via your Cloudflare DNS zone would be enough.

Note that after every DNS change it could take up to 24-48 hours for the DNS to propagate over the Globe before you could see the changes.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
