Hi @Adam0101,

That’s entirely possible! I’ll assume you’ve added the main Domain to your DigitalOcean account. To add the subdomain you’ll just need to go to your Control Panel --> Find your Domain and click on the 3 dots --> Manage Domain. There in order to create a subdomain choose an A record, in the Hostname type in the subdomain.

For example if you want to add a subdomain called ‘test’, you’ll need to :

Choose the DNS record - A Hostname - test Will Direct to - choose the Droplet TTL - leave it as 3600 Create Record.

That should be enough for you to point your subdomain to another Droplet.
