Setup subdomain to another host


i need to setup to another host

I have domain ( which is on dedicate server with root access.

also have which is on hostgator host(where can i add domains via addon domains)

now i need to setup subdomain on hostgator.

how can i do it ?

pls correct me, if i'm wrong

1. via Directadmin Subdomain Management tool (on add "1" subdomain

2. check "DNS Management" section -> is on main IP

Unfortunately there isn't any option to edit this record. i can only delete it and add manually. (i know, that i can do it via SSH - > edit config file, but i don't have enought experience to edit files via SSH. just know, few commands, how to archive, reboot, move, etc ...)

delete this record and add manually

DNS Management -> Add Domain Records -> - A record =IP of hostgatore host

btw, did i need to add NS records?

3. go to and try to add via addon domains.


it seems, that i'm doing something wrong, as i got

Created DNS entry for
