domains – How to point subdomain to AWS Amplify?

No, you can’t use different nameservers for different subdomains. The nameservers tell the internet where the DNS for a domain (including its subdomains) is hosted.

To point a subdomain to another server, here are a couple of methods.

In your hosting panel (e.g. cpanel) create the subdomain home.example.com. Then in DNS find the A Record for that and change the IP address to the IP address of the amplify server.

Alternatively, in DNS, create an A Record for the subdomain and set the IP address. Both methods have the same outcome.

You then must have home.example.com set up on the target server.
