    Hi Guys

    I'm hosting a forum for a client, their current website is hosted elsewhere.

    What I want is to direct forum.xxx.com to the forum i've hosted...is this possible?

    Yes you need access to DNS server on their end.

    You make a DNS entry on their side that directs to your IP address instead of their IP address it needs to be an A record.
