Question

Subdomain Domain Name Server

Posted October 30, 2013 9.3k views
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.

Hostgator cPanel > Simple DNS Zone Editor > A record

Name - your-subdomain.com
Address - IP Address
Where are you hosting your DNS records?
You can just add an A record for the subdomain that points to your droplet's IP address.

Let me know if that works :]
I have been using Hostgator for both Wordpress hosting and Domain management.

Thanks I will try setting A record.

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