I have a website here and just bought a domain at namecheap.com. I already connected my domain with my netlify-website. Everything works fine.
The netlify website is for my Minecraft-Server. On the website, I just explain everything about the server and link my Discord for the server, etc…
Now I want to create a subdomain that leads to the Minecraft server.
The domain I bought is uniquesurvival.net. This leads to the website.
And now I want the subdomain play.uniquesurvival.net which should lead to the Minecraft-Server.
I read this article and don’t get it. https://docs.netlify.com/domains-https/custom-domains/configure-external-dns/#configure-a-subdomain
When I read correctly, I should not use netlifys nameservers.
So the first question: Is my DNS Provider = to my domain-provider?
Second question: I don’t see “DNS configuration” In the custom Domains tab.
Third question: what is a CNAME record?
Fourth question: What is a DNS record?
And overall, I am confused. If someone can help me personally can direct me to a good explanation, I would be very thankful.
