I have two subdomain pointing out to a rackspace server IP address. Would it be possible to create a new subdomain that points to another IP address? If yes, how can I do this via go daddy?

Where is your DNS hosted at? Are the current subdomains setup in the Go Daddy DNS Manager?

If you're using Go Daddy to host your DNS (e.g. the nameservers for your domain are set to the Go Daddy nameservers), then you can go into the Go Daddy DNS Manager and add another A record for your subdomain.

If you're not currently using the Go Daddy DNS Manager for your existing subdomains, please give some more details on where your DNS records are managed.

The DNS is hosted at rackspace, I changed the nameserver to rackspace. So I should add an A record to rackspace DNS management system, which points to the server IP address.. correct? – user79356 Apr 25 '11 at 2:56
That is correct. Most DNS management systems operate similarly. So if your subdomain is, then add an A record for "server3" and the corresponding IP address. – user78940 Apr 25 '11 at 3:31
