Yii2 developement @ subdomain.com

I own a domain.com registered @ Google domains that points to a Google blog and I want to leave my name servers to Google's default's for now.. but point a subdomain.domain.com to a development version of yii2.. while I work through the tutorials, any advice on how to pursue that would be awesome!

Domain Record Type IP Address
yii2 A

Google Domains seems to call these "resource records." Take a look at this Google Domains help page. For a more general introduction to DNS, check out this tutorial:
