You could do forums.blah.com

Have an A record for that pointed to the ip of createaforum.com then use domain manager to update your forum's url

And I'm currently trying to park my down my domain on the forum.

So I parked it at survivaloftheundead.com
is that wrong?
Should I do forums.survivaloftheundead.com ?
and should I click the "update forum url" or no?
