Subdomain on a different host


I'm trying to host a subdomain for my site with a different hosting company and I'm running into issues on how to set it up.

Here are the specifics: - Domain is registered with GoDaddy. - Nameservers are pointing to where ASP.NET app has been happily running for couple of years. - Would like to point to my account with to take advantage of their LAMP stack.

I have added to DreamHost (after adding via their control panel. I thought I would be able to add a subdomain entry on GoDaddy to point to DreamHost, but all they allow is = new url.

In theory I could just take our .biz or .net domain and host it on DreamHost but was hoping I could do it all with a subdomain.

So, to summarize I'd like to know if what I want to do is feasible and if so, how do I go about it (given the constraints of GoDaddy, DiscountASP, & DreamHost).

sub domain is part of the domain, it's like subletting a room of an apartment. A records has to be setup on the dns for the domain e.g has IP 123.456.789.999 and hosted with Godaddy. Now to get the sub domain

of which the site is actually on another server then

login to Godaddy and add an A record dnsimple and point the IP to the other server

And that's it.
