I thought I had setup everything correctly on Godaddy, but it appears I am missing some part - when I use an MX lookup tool, I get the response:
Sorry, we could not find a namesever for subdomain.mydomain.com
I use Total DNS Control in Godaddy, and I use two of their name servers and never had a problem with creating sub domains.
At the moment, I have the new sub domain setup under
to point at @ (where the web server will refuse it since the new sub domain is not meant to point to my site), and under MX (Mail Exchange):
10 newsubdomain mxgiven.byhoneypot.com. 1 Hour
I even have the last period after the target host name.
During setup on ProjectHoneyPot, there are links to instructions for Godaddy, but the links appeared to be outdated, and I could not get the correct instructions.
Can someone help me figure out what I am missing?
I thought if I setup a new sub domain on the Godaddy DNS Control page, it would change in their own DNS servers...
If I enter the new sub domain in a browser, I get a 403 error, not a "domain unknown" error, so the new sub domain exists, but just not for MX, or ... ?
Thanks in advance!
