I bought a domain from Dreamhost, but my servers are actually running on Amazon's AWS. I have an Elastic IP, say

In the Dreamhost panel, I've added an A record for my domain name, pointing it to

My question is, are all subdomains (e.g. www.mydomain.com, a.mydomain.com, etc.) automatically mapped to as well, because the root is? Or do I have to add separate rules for each subdomain?

If you want everything for mydomain.com to point to you will need to setup a wildcard dns entry in your Dreamhost panel. Have a look at this blog which give some advice on how to do just that.
