Trying to Create a Subdomain

Hello! I have been trying to create a subdomain for our website and am stuck. We have mywebsite.com and I would like to add chat.mywebsite.com. I am following the directions here but I don't know where to find what to put in the "host" or "points to" boxes. Can someone direct me?

The host would be the sub-domain, so if you put "chat" that makes chat.yourdomain.com

 

For the points to, this is for the IP address of the service that will host your subdomain.  Some may give you a host address (example.chathost.com), for this you would use a CNAME instead of A record.
