    Domain And Subdomain. Both Have Different Ips, Servers And Dns Servers


    Tell me if this is ok!

    1. I register newdomain.com at godaddy
    2. I set this domain's nameservers to whatever the nameservers of newdomain.com is lets say 34.32.45.34
    3. I host newdomain.com on a webserver 34.32.45.34 which also acts as a dns, same ip 34.32.45.34, (so both the webserver and dns are the same ip and server)
    4. Now on a completely different server I host mysubdomain.newdomain.com having an ip of 56.33.22.33, it also acts as a dns with the same ip 56.33.22.33
    5. In godaddy I register a separate domain newdomainnumber2.com and assign 56.33.22.33 as its nameserver. So now this new nameserver is interconnected with godaddy's network of nameservers, but is in no way connected to the first domain newdomain.com, except it hosts the subdomain mysubdomain.newdomain.com

    My question

    Will everyone on the internet be able to find mysubdomain.newdomain.com or do I need to do more?

    You need to setup an entry on the DNS server 34.32.45.34 for the subdomain which points to it's IP of 56.33.22.33.

    So in the zone file for newdomain.com you would have an entry like:
    Code:
    mysubdomain IN A 56.33.22.33.

    Is there anything else I can do? Perhaps in the godaddy account make an entry for the subdomain to point to a different nameserver?

    The reason Im asking is because this is for seo purposes and I don't google to find out. I guess they will one way or the other, but perhaps there are other ways?

    As far as I know, there is no way to associate a nameserver with a subdomain, only with the main level domain name.

    Google probably won't care about whether the two sites use the same nameserver or even host. Tons of sites use the same host/nameserver.

    Every domain has individual IPs and servers.

    You can add NS records in the main domain DNS pointing to another DNS server to handle DNS for a subdomain. GoDaddy has a faq article about setting this up somewhere in their knowledgebase.
