Where's a good resource for explaining DNS? Just (and only just) managed to set-up on a droplet. Just the forwarding from my sub-domain to the droplet is problematic.

I need to lie down now - I'm not quite smart enough for this! πŸ˜–

@svedi perfect!

Thank you, you seem to have judged my skill level incredibly accurately... ;)

@gairsty to get the sub-domain to work, all you need to do is create an A record (address record) for your sub-domain, that points to the IP address of your droplet. After a few hours, or should start working.

thanks for that. When I get back home from work tomorrow, I'll look at that.
