View Full Version : Subdomain located in own VPS

Is it possible to have a subdomain sitting on a separate VPS? For example, can subdomain.maindomain.com be on a different vps than maindomain.com?

And if so, how do I go about doing it?

I don't think that is possible or if it is I have never heard of anyone doing it.

If you have control of your DNS outside of WestHost's DNS you can fake it. I had to do this last week.

First, configure a new VPS with a static IP address using a false domain name -- gnh67390.com for instance. Then using your external DNS point to that IP address.

One thing to remember if you do this is that sometimes WestHost has to change your Static IP. If they do have to do this they well send you a notification of when it well happen. You would have to make sure that you update your DNS if this where to happen.
