A friend asked me to help them with a new website on a subdomain that has a different host than the main domain.
The domain is registered with Host A, the name servers point to Host A, however the CNAME for the main domain points to Host B. A subdomain has been created and "points to" its subdirectory (i.e. folder123). However, the host does not have a typical cpanel, it's oversimplified and I can't see that that "points to" record is. Either way, the subdomain is not bringing up the new website in the folder.
So do I need to create a CNAME record for the subdomain that point to the folder on Host A? Or would I get Host A's IP and create a A record to that?
