Hello @teambeternal-life

Adding a sub-domain is an easy process. As Bobby mentioned you’ll need to add DNS as the first step. The process involves adding an A record for the sub-domain. If you’re meaning your DNS with DigitalOcean you can follow the link

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/networking/dns/how-to/manage-records/

If DNS is managed by a third-party you can follow their knowledgebase on how to add the record.

From there you need to add the sub-domain on your server and deploy the site/app content.

Hi there,

It really depends on what exactly you want to do with that specific sub-domain name, but in general, all that you would need to do in terms of the DNS configuration is to add an A record for your subdomain name in your DNS zone.

For more information, you can follow the steps here:

Hope that this helps!

Best,

Bobby
