Put subdomain in another server (reseller hosting), please guide me

 2:21 pm on Sep 6, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hi guys,

I want to put some subdomain.mydomain.com in another server

i understand in current server, in WHM > Edit DNS Zone > mydomain.com > i just need to add A record like
subdomain A server IP)

before that, i need to set the another server first, so i want to order a reseller hosting for the another server.
My question is what domain i need to put in the order form? Is it ok still put mydomain.com?

Because i tried put subdomain.mydomain.com but its says not valid domain. Its standart hosting order form, using WHMCS

and what nameserver i need to use in the another server WHM later > Basic cPanel & WHM Setup > Nameservers, is it still ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com like current server use? Where i need to create the nameserver for the another server?

please help, this should be easy if you have done it before

I don't know your host's system, but I just added a separate hosting account for a sub-domain on mine and I simply ordered the sub-domain. There's no need for Name Servers. Just add the A Record.

you use the same DNS for all the subdomains of your domain and for all protocols.

the 2nd hosting configuration should only receive traffic for subdomain.example.com and it can be configured for that specific subdomain or for wildcard subdomains.
if you have it configured to accept requests for wildcard subdomains, make sure you have sufficient hostname canonicalization redirects in place.
