Making a Subdomain

I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. But I'm trying to put a forum into my website. Went into my domains dns and added a cname to my domain. So for example my website would be domain.com so I did forums.domain.com as my Subdomain. But now my website says it is parked. The forum I installed into my host worked on the Subdomain. So I ended up resetting my host so I can start over incase I did something wrong. I'm new to website making. Does it take time or something for it to fully start working, did I do anything wrong.

Try adding an A record:

 

Host/Name: forum

 

Value: Your site's IP address

 

See if that does the trick! 😉

Re: Making a Subdomain

I ended up making a CNAME for my Subdomain and that worked after I forwarded it to my site.
