Subdomain not working

I'm attempting to add a subdomain ( but it never seems to work, even after waiting more than 24 hours to propagate, pinging the website, and checking to see if it works anywhere.

I have tried using A-type and CNAME for the subdomain, but neither seem to have made a difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Griffin0991,

I see that your domain is using a third party DNS provider. In searching for (with your real domain) I am not showing a record from that provider.

Even if you have created the subdomain on your server, the DNS provider also needs to have a record created so it knows to point to your server.
