Point subdomain to ip

Hi all :slight_smile:

I have a doubt.

How can I point a subdomain to alternate ip ?

like, sv.mydomain.com to my.ip
not simple redirect

Thanks and sorry by my bad english :smiley:

The only way you can do that right now is by creating a CNAME record. A CNAME record can be used to point a subdomain to another domain name, so the subdomain will be pointing to that IP address.

You cannot point a subdomain to an IP address directly at the moment.

Fortunately, every IP address is supposed to have a corresponding hostname. If you want to point it to your home IP, you could look up your IP hostname on a site like http://www.whatsmyip.org/ (under Your Host Name) and point your subdomain to it.
