My boss has me working on an ancient server at his place where there is no fancy cPanel to create sub/addon domains.
Basically what we have is a plain-text file that appears to be controlling all the records for the domain.
The actual site is hosted on: 126.96.36.199 The URL is: http://cif-ifc.org/
We need a subdomain, "application.cif-ifc.org", to send the user to a DIFFERENT server (188.8.131.52) using an A-record (we think).
I would know how to do this with cPanel, but NOT with this plain text file that you see below:
**Here is our plain text "DNS control" file, called "db.cif-ifc.org":
$TTL 600 @ IN SOA dns.cif-ifc.org. admin.cif-ifc.org. ( 2012081003 ; Serial 600 ; Refresh after 3 hours 600 ; Retry after 1 hour 600 ; Expire after 1 day 600 ) ; Minimum TTL of 1 day @ IN NS dns.bids.ca. @ IN NS dns2.bids.ca. cif-ifc.org. IN A 184.108.40.206 dns IN A 220.127.116.11 pubs in a 18.104.22.168 staging.pubs in cname pubs maint in cname maint.literatumonline.com. backup in cname honoredsoft.com. * IN cname cif-ifc.org. cif-ifc.org. in mx 10 aspmx.l.google.com. cif-ifc.org. in mx 20 ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. cif-ifc.org. in mx 20 ALT2.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. cif-ifc.org. in mx 30 ASPMX2.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. cif-ifc.org. in mx 30 ASPMX3.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. cif-ifc.org. in mx 30 ASPMX4.GOOGLEMAIL.COM. cif-ifc.org. in mx 30 ASPMX5.GOOGLEMAIL.COM.
Would any of you super-user duders mind providing some insight or pointing me in the right direction? Thanks!
