    subdomains and nameservers

    Ok, heres my situation:
    I currently have a domain registered with Network solutions. I am thinking of purchasing a VPS to go along with my shared hosting account.
    I have a subdomain which is a totally different site than mine. Lets call it
    sub1.mysite.com
    And then I have mysite.com
    I want sub1.mysite.com to point to my VPS
    I want mysite.com to point to my shared hosting.
    Will this be possible? If so, how?

    an easy way to do this is with outsourced dns.

    I have done this with dnsmadeeasy and zoneedit.

    (making sub.example.com and example.com separate entries)

    Add sub1.mysite.com as a domain in VPS and create an A record for sub1.mysite.com to VPS IP address.

    This all seems very confusing .
    Are there any good websites that offer DNS tutorials or something like that?
    Thanks,

    Here is a quick tutorial. http://www.webhostgear.com/12.html

    1. Add subdomain.domain.com in your WHM/cPanel
    2. Go to your domain registrar and add A record to specific IP address. (requires registrar nameservers)
