First, make sure that the subdomain resolves to your virtual server’s IP address:

After you’ve confirmed the subdomain is resolving correctly, ensure your Apache virtual hosts are correctly configured:

That should be it =)

Setting up domain names can be challenging for those who are inexperienced. The "dig" command can help verify that your domain settings are correct. This is also helpful for investigating how other websites set up their domain records. This guide will introduce the basics of how to query information with dig. It will also briefly explore the "ping" and "whois" commands.
