Hosting a subdomain on Webflow


#1

Hi,

I’ve run into an issue with connecting a sub-domain to a Webflow hosted site.

I want to connect subdomain (ad.kimberleyplastic.com.au) to a webflow hosted site. The thing is, the domain (kimberleyplastic.com.au) is pointing elsewhere - so I only want to host the subdomain on Webflow.

I’ve set up the subdomain with the Webflow A-Records

However, if i go to ad.kimberleyplastic.com.au it gives this error. And it always redirects to https://www.ad.kimberleyplastic.com.au

I’m wondering does anyone know if it’s possible to host just a subdomain on webflow and if so, what is the DNS configuration to get it setup?

Thanks in advance for you help

Hello @Diarmuid_Sexton

You need to create a CNAME record for your subdomain and point it to proxy-ssl.webflow.com

You can check this in this tutorial:

In the minute 1:23 it’s the answer :wink:
