Adding Subdomain entry to DNS

I am wanting to have my website accommodate requests to – I just need it set up as a recognized alias

I thought if I entered A record for news and pointed it at IP that would do it, but apparently not. What am I doing wrong. I end up with 404 from the WPengine host

What exactly do you mean by this?

The error message you are getting is explicit about the issue:

This domain is successfully pointed at WP Engine, but is not configured for an account on our platform.

As you have not added the news hostname to the Site in WPE, they know nothing about the hostname in question.

Yes, I needed to add domain to WPE (which added CNAME to Cloudflare).
Thanks, all fine now.
