WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have added a new application to my account and am attempting to configure it to be accessible from a subdomain (node.cronping.com) I've added that subdomain to my domains list. But the real issue is that the subdomain will not ping .. its returns an unknown host error .. I gave it a lot of time .. more than 9 hours ..

Any thoughts ?

thank you .. I thought that the primary domain name would always point toward Webfaction and then WF would resolve the subdomain .. I understand now .. thanks again.

Your domain does not use our nameservers:

$ dig NS cronping.com +short
ns24.domaincontrol.com.
ns23.domaincontrol.com.
$ dig @ns24.domaincontrol.com node.cronping.com +short
$

The nameservers it uses are from GoDaddy, so you would have to configure your subdomain to point to the server's IP there for it to start resolving.
