    Configure subdomain on another server


    I have 2 domains as follows:
    Domain1 on Server 1 =
    Domain2 on Server 2 = (has a forum)

    How can I configure, but to be on Server 2?

    The idea of this exercise is to feel the visitors when they browse the forum that they are on same website/server.

    I hope I made the idea clear.

    Are you using any control panel?

    Just create a virtual host on server 2 and point the subdomain to the IP of the second server from the 1-st one.

    Create website on server2 and setup the A record for the subdomain on server1 to point to the IP of server2.

    At server2's WHM, create the account .

    AT server1's WHM, Edit DNS zone --> add A Entry to to point to server2's IP

    Thank you guys, I got the idea.

    One mre question, is there any effect or load on Server1 since every page request for a page it will point to Server2?

    No, it will not cause any load on the first server, as it doesn't host any content. It will only have DNS settings for the subdomain.
