How do I set up host name?

Hi, I'm new to hosting and all this. 


I want to set up what I think is called a "host name". My domain name is I want to set up a "host name" that is, that will later be connected to the Xenforo forums platform. 


What is the correct terminology for this, and how do I set this up?

Re: How do I set this up...?

Yes, when used for a website it's commonly referred to as a sub-domain. 


If you use cPanel from GoDaddy, here are the steps to set one up.


If you use some other host they'll provide an A or CNAME record you'll need to add to the domain.


Host/name: forms
