Question

Subdomain Domain Name Server

I am checking out Ghost on DigitalOcean. Ghost has been setup [2]. I wanted to redirect a temporary subdomain to Ghost IP as instructed at [1]. I manage my website through Hostgator. I can’t find an option to change subdomain’s Name Server.

@Kamal Nasser setting A record in Hostgator cPanel did the trick. I am leaving this information for future. <br> <br>Hostgator cPanel > Simple DNS Zone Editor > A record <br> <br>Name - your-subdomain.com <br>Address - IP Address

I have tried this method but I entered the subdomain and it brings me to a non-responding page.

I have been using Hostgator for both Wordpress hosting and Domain management. <br> <br>Thanks I will try setting A record.
