Question

Subdomains through registrar or DigitalOcean?

Posted December 7, 2013 1.6k views
I have my domain registered through 1&1. If I want to create a subdomain (i.e. test.example.com), do I need to add "test" in my 1&1 dns settings area or do I do it through DigitalOcean? Or do I need to create the subdomains in both places?

Once you've added example.com to the DNS Manager, you can proceed to creating the subdomain DNS record:
Type: A

Name: test
Value: 1.2.3.4

where 1.2.3.4 is your droplet's IP address.
