yes you can do a dns cname and point it to your subdomain or a dns A record and point to the IP of your forum

It would be at your domain name provider you would need to edit the DNS.
The IP would be 64.79.105.131

ok I think I got it done... now is there any way to set the actual domain to forum.creatureverse.net? cuz right now I can only use www.forum.creatureverse.net due to the www. automatically being added?

Looks like you have a namecheap forward.
Use only this! http://forum.creatureverse.net

NOT! http://www.forum.creatureverse.net
