How to create a subdomain in Apache Web Server and with Godaddy

I am running a LAMP stack. I have the domain example.com registered. I created an Apache virtual site with ServerName example.com and ServerAlias www.example.com.

I did not create any subdomains on the Godaddy website. I was under the impression I just needed to create another Apache virtual host.

I created a new host that pointed to a new directory. The ServerName was forums.example.com and the server alias was www.forums.example.com.

I enabled the site and reloaded Apache and when I try to visit forums.example.com I get a DNS error.

Does the answer lay in my Apache configuration file, or in subdomain settings from Godady?
