I'm wondering if I got this right. I want to have my subdomain point to the cdn. I created a fresh subdomain in WHM cdn.mydomain.com and proceeded to edit the dns zone. I saw two drop down menus that were cname by default (www and mail). I wasn't sure if I was supposed to edit those or create a new entry. Well I didn't touch them, but I added a new entry:
cdn.mydomain.com 14400 IN CNAME xxx.cdndomain.com.
My subdomain is still working fine, so I'm not sure if it's propagating. Did I miss anything?
Billingchamp is also correct in that the format would be:
cdn 14400 IN CNAME xxx.cdndomain.com.
Ok tried that now, I just removed my domain and just included the subdomain address instead. Is there a way to check if you've done things correctly? I've googled that you can use nslookup, but I tried nslookup cdn.mydomain.com before and after the change, but there wasn't any difference. I guess I'll just have to wait another 2 days...
I just noticed Billingchamp said, "while editing the DNS zone for mydomain.com?"
Oops, I've been editing the DNS zone for cdn.mydomain.com, I guess that is where I messed up? So should I be adding a new entry to mydomain.com DNS zone instead or is it the same thing?
