Hey bro, we have our domain (hellboundbloggers.com) on GoDaddy and our sub-domain (forum.hellboundbloggers.com) configured on DigitalOcean. It’s simple actually.
After creating your droplet, go there > More > Add a domain and you can add your sub-domain here!
Now grab the IP Address of your droplet and if you have the option to edit your DNS records in GoDaddy, then create “A” record and add “Your IP Address” as the value. Save the settings. That’s all.
If you don’t have the option to edit your DNS records in GoDaddy, then we can do that on DigitalOcean itself, go to Networking > Domains > Manage domain (of your Droplet) and add your “A” record here.
Now, go to your GoDaddy account and use DigitalOcean nameservers:
That’s all bro. It should be properly configured now, let me know if you have any queries.
