Hey,

I have got a problem with my domain I have connected with Adobe Portfolio. I can use it in a normal way but I want to use a new subdomain from my domain differently, especially not with Adobe Portfolio. But no matter what I upload in my web space connected with the subdomain, I always get redirected to an Adobe Portfolio Page, which says that the page is missing (https://portfolio.adobe.com/missing). 
Does someone know how to solve this problem? I am looking forward to hearing from you!

See link below for details on using a subdomain with your Portfolio site. https://help.myportfolio.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010295214-Configuring-a-custom-subdomain To answer your question about using a subdomain on a different server, you'll need to change the DNS settings from your domain provider's website.  Point the subdomain's A records to your new server's IP address.

Hey,

 

thanks for your answer. I have got several A Records, do I have to change all of them to the same new IP Address or just the ones for the subdomain?

Read the link I posted above.

If you change all A records to a new server, then everything will direct to your new server.  Is that what you want?

Thanks I will read it! 

No, I only want to redirect certain subsomains to something else than a portfolio site, for example a shop or another CMS from my webspace I have!

Laurin,

 

Did you ever figure this out? I had the same goal with a domain I manage. ie to map my portfolio page (hosted by Adobe) to mydomain.com while also redirecting to a shop page (hosted elsewhere) at store.mydomain.com.

Read about custom domain names.

https://help.myportfolio.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010295214-Configuring-a-custom-subdomain

 

Primary domain goes to Portfolio IP address.

Sub-domain goes to 3rd party IP address.
