A question about subdomain





likeabreeze
Yes, this question has puzzled me for a long time.
For example,
I registered a domain (example.com) at godaddy(domain registrar), and hosted it on frihost(web hosting provider).
and then I wanna create several subdomains.
It's well-known that the next step is to go to frihost(web hosting provider) to do this.
WHY?
Why go to frihost(web hosting provider) but not to godaddy(domain registrar)?
I don't think subdomains have something to do with a web hosting provider.
In my eye, subdomain is just another kind of domain.

This is because you are using Frihost as both a web server and a dns server. By pointing the nameservers of your domain to Frihost (or somewhere else), you are putting that server in charge of the dns of your domain name.

If you wish, you can point the nameservers to another dns server and then on that dns server point the A records of the domain (and the same for the subdomains) to a web host. You would need to do the same for the MX records (email).
