Question

Subdomains through registrar or DigitalOcean?

  • Posted December 7, 2013

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?
