To use two different hosting for one domain, you can set up what is called a "DNS record" to point different subdomains to each of the hosting providers.


Here's a step-by-step guide to doing this:

  1. Log in to your domain registrar's website where you have registered your domain.
  2. Find the section for managing your domain's DNS settings.
  3. Create two DNS records, one for each hosting provider. For example, you can create an "A" record for subdomain1.yourdomain.com pointing to the IP address of the first hosting provider, and another "A" record for subdomain2.yourdomain.com pointing to the IP address of the second hosting provider.
  4. Save the DNS records and allow some time for the changes to propagate through the DNS system (this can take up to 24 hours).
  5. Set up your hosting accounts with the respective providers.
  6. Upload your website files to each hosting provider's server and configure the settings as needed.
  7. You can now access your website using the subdomains you created, such as subdomain1.yourdomain.com and subdomain2.yourdomain.com, each pointing to a different hosting provider.


By following these steps, you can effectively use two different hosting providers for one domain.
