SubDomain Setup
« on: May 09, 2018, 06:56:49 AM »

This is probably very simple, but how do I create a subdomain for a domain I already use for?
I want to host the subdomain's DNS here as well and this is something I can do in BIND, but am unsure of how to configure it using the interface here.

Thank you for your time

As far as I know, there's nothing special about creating a sub-domain here.  Then again, I have all my domains here as secondary/slave to my co-located server which is the primary name server.

I have not addressed how to create a sub-domain (or DNS sub-zone) in general.  If that is your true question, there are plenty of resources on the Internet to show you how.....

I've just done it successfully with one of my domains.  If your domain is and the subdomain is, first create NS records within your zone like so:

Code: [Select]      86400 IN NS      86400 IN NS      86400 IN NS      86400 IN NS      86400 IN NS

You will then need to wait 10 mins for HE nameservers to catchup, then 'Add a new domain' from the menu and enter ''
