Howto make subdomains work on a different server than domains (e.g. foo.domain.com) with CNAME records configuration

From How2s

Let's say you have a domain.com running on hosting company A, but you want to have a new domain mobile.domain.com running on hosting company B. How would you achieve that?

You have to change the so called CNAME Records (Canonical Name).

You go to nameserver (check it out via 'whois') of the domain.com (most likely company A) and tell them, they have to create the A-Record for the subdomains mobile.domain.com and it has to point to the IP address of the server on which mobile.domain.com is running.
