I currently have a domain name pointing to my static IP at home for various things. I am also wanting to have a subdomain of that pointing to my hosting server.

Can anyone help me out as to how to set this up on the DNS server? I assume it would be an 'a' record?

Do I somehow need to forward the DNS request for the subdomain to the hosting server, which has it's own DNS server?

The domain registrar should have tools to allow you to manually change the records. If not they should allow you to request those changes.

Where's the domain registered?

It's registered with GoDaddy. I have added an A record for the subdomain to the DNS, and if I try to ping the subdomain it resolves as the IP address of the server I want it to, but I cant load anything in the browser, it just times out.

On GoDaddy you have the Total DNS Management link on each domain. Just add the records there. If you have done that and can resolve the domain correctly then you need to configure the server. I assume you have not created a header redirection for the proper subdomain name you are using...

Setup in GoDaddy Total DNS management and resolving correctly. Subdomain setup in server which creates DNS records on servers own DNS server (Server is running cPanel) so should be fine to load the page however it just doesnt load anything.

If I change the namesevers on the domain to the web servers it works, however when the DNS is being managed by GoDaddy nothing loads on the cPanel server. Server here works as expected (IIS displays site based on host header value).
