Since the main domain will be configured here, how will I set up the subdomain?



If your server supports you can add “subdomain” in A record and then point it to your other server IP address. I am not sure but you can try this out.

If you point your domain to DO dns you should be able to add an ‘A’ record and pointed over to the other hosting.
