    Subdomain as the main account - pointing "A" record from Google Domains - Not Working, Please Help!

    Hello,

    So I am trying to set up a subdomain website, our main website is currently being hosted on Squarespace but our domain is being hosted on Google Domains.

    This is how I created it,

    Google Domains – Chose Domain – Edit DNS – Customize Resource Records – Added "A" record as sub.domain.com points to IP xx.x.xx.xxx

    WHM – Create Account – Domain: sub.domain.com (the rest was default)

    I gave this about 3 - 4 hours to propagate, when I created it and visited the website I saw the /index which gave me the thought that it worked. Now I am receiving this error code; server IP address could not be found.

    Can you help me resolve this?

    Thanks
