How do I add a sub domain to my dns
how to create a dns sub domain
There are 2 ways to create dns subdomains on the Microtech platform. If you simply want a name for a website, then the easiest method is the first one. If you need completely seperate dns administration, for example if this is a branch office with different mail servers etc, then it is probably best for you to setup via method 2.
Bring up the parent domains dns via the link on your management panel
If you need to add MX records for this sub domain, add a new record with 'subdomain' as the name, MX as the record type, and put the name of the mail server in full (with the dot at the end) in the data column.
Go to the 'DNS' menu, choose 'Enable dns for a domain', choose the static dns option.
If you create a sub domain using method 2, make sure there is no A record with this sam name in the parent domains dns as this will override your sub domain
