    • Enter your subdomain name alone in the Host name ( Eg: My domain name is example.com, I need to create subdomain as help.example.com then enter help in the Host name area)
    • In the TTL area leave the default value as 3600 (means 1 hour)

    1. You can use A record for linking domain to physical IP address. Or use CNAME for linking alias name to another true or canonical domain name.
      Use an A record if you manage which IP addresses are assigned to a particular machine or if the IP are fixed. Use a CNAME record if you want to alias one name to another name.
      Usually A name is faster than CNAME because CNAME results 2nd DNS lookup for the domain name specified in the CNAME
