Host Subdomain Name on Different Web Hosting

Host website on a server is easy thing to do and today almost everyone know’s how to do it.Recently we tried to host on different server because of huge amount of data we were having on one of our client’s domain name and faced lots of issues while doing the same.

Reason being limited space provided  on dedicated servers make impossible to continue on single hosting. It becomes super essential to have separate hosting on different servers to get the opportunity to have more web space along with security of data.

As like everyone we thought initially it would be easy to connect different hosting with sub domain name however when we start working on it, We faced lots of issues as we found it is not easy to create multiple hosting on a same domain name. After several attempts we got succeeded and would like to share with everyone!
So in order to host sub-domain name on different host. Follow the following steps :-

1.  Open Web Hosting  Panel like for example websitename.com/cpanel. ( It’s not necessary that your control panel URL is going to be same as mentioned example.)  Once your hosting panel is opened find out the Advanced DNS Zone Section.

2. Once it opened Insert the desired sub domain which you would like to connect with new hosting. After inserting sub domain name insert the default TTL value ’14400′. Select Type as ‘A’ and after selecting Type as ‘A’ record insert the I.P address of your new hosting and click on Add record.

Once the record is added. Kindly wait for 24-48 hours to propagate sub domain name with I.P address. Once it done go ahead and create hosting for sub domain name.
