Subdomain question

I’m trying to figure out if the following is possible. I want to set up my domain so that: –> external photo site (Zenfolio) –> my blog, hosted elsewhere

To assign my main domain name to Zenfolio, I would modify my domain DNS settings to create an A-record pointing to Zenfolio. So would go to my Zenfolio site.

If I did that, I’m trying to figure out how to configure the DNS settings to that I can have a subdomain ( that is hosted separately. It may be that my understanding of DNS is incomplete, but my understanding is that the IP address associated with the A-record handles requests for that domain. I’m just unclear as to how I would configure the subdomain once the A-record is pointing to Zenfolio.

Is what I want to do possible? Can I have two A-records, one for pointing to Zenfolio & one for pointing to my web hosting account?

Thanks in advance!

The same way you configure the root domain to an IP you can do the same for a subdomain.

Thanks. I created an A-record for the subdomain … waiting for changes to propagate to see if that works.

Another related question. I have the following DNS records – 14400 IN A 14400 IN CNAME

When I change the A-record for to point to the external photo site, what do I need to do to ensure the email settings aren’t messed up?

Much appreciated,

You do nothing…
