Add subdomain in Netlify DNS

So I am using Netlfiy DNS to host my site. Main adn point to pages hosted on netlify

But i want to add a subdomain and point to external IP. I try adding a CNAME record but it doesn’t work.

Any solution on how to do it?

hi there dev5,

i do get a page loading at and as long as you have your apex domain pointing to a page on netlify, it’s fine to keep using Netlify DNS. that said, it looks like we have not extended your SSL certificate to the api subdomain. would you like us to do that?
