I want to set up a dns record for our staging site which is on a different server. Say if our domain is www.example.com can I simply create a new A record for www.staging.example.com pointing to a different IP address?

  • @BrandonXavier, I'm not used to working with DNS records and just wanted to ask someone to be 100% sure

    I agree totally and don't mind a bit - my comment above was in response to a downvote (which in my opinion was unwarranted) and not worded very well to reflect that it was directed at the downvoter not you. :) Sep 10, 2015 at 9:31

www.staging     IN A  your.staging.ip.address
