It means the webserver is working correctly as I said before but that something locally isn't working for you. Try creating a dns entry that looks like the one you already have but then for support, so it looks like this.
Code:
support.webshooter.se.    3600    IN    A    194.54.164.156

the hosts file in the server looks like this: (with the addition you recommended)
127.0.1.1 ws02 ws02
127.0.0.1 localhost
support.webshooter.se. 3600 IN A 194.54.164.156
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

So I don't know what else to do.
The hostname is ws02

You don't add it to the webserver's host file but you need to add it to the server(s) hosting the dns for webshooter.se so that you can request it through dns.
Code:
;; ANSWER SECTION:
webshooter.se.        3600    IN    SOA    ns1.namesystem.se. registry.glesys.se. 12 10800 2700 1814400 10800
So these servers are hosting the domain webshooter.se.
Code:
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns1.namesystem.se.
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns2.namesystem.se.
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns3.namesystem.se.
Code:
ns1.namesystem.se has address 195.238.76.18
ns1.namesystem.se has IPv6 address 2a02:750:aaaa::1

ns2.namesystem.se has address 195.238.77.18
ns2.namesystem.se has IPv6 address 2a02:750:aaaa::2

s3.namesystem.se has address 195.20.206.18
ns3.namesystem.se has IPv6 address 2a02:750:aaaa::3
If you have a hostprovider hosting the dns for you then you should be able to login to an interface to add dns records, that's where you add support.webshooter.se with the ip adress.

webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns3.namesystem.se.
Code:
ns1.namesystem.se has address 195.238.76.18
ns1.namesystem.se has IPv6 address 2a02:750:aaaa::1

ns2.namesystem.se has address 195.238.77.18

s3.namesystem.se has address 195.20.206.18
ns3.namesystem.se has IPv6 address 2a02:750:aaaa::3
Shall I put all this into the /etc/hosts file in the server to get it to work?

1. We have concluded that the subdomain works because when I added it to my hosts file I get the page that you expect.
2. The location where you do a request from to support.webshooter.se is that from your laptop or are you logged in directly into the webserver and have a browser open there?
3. How did you get it to work for the working domain webshooter.se, I find it strange that you have it working for that one but can't get it to work for the new subdomain, what's the difference as in how they are setup?

I hope you are doing this for your personal learning experience and not for work?

1. OK.
2 I am using safari in my macbook and in hosts in that if I put 194.54.164.156 support.webshooter.se I can reach the support page but not without it. I have only an ssh connection to the server.
3 I have not set up that originally, there is another guy have done that, hard to get in touch with so difficult to ask him... :)

All this is, the webshooter is a pistol competition system written in laravel and all is volontary work, not for making profit. And yes, for my personal learning!

2. You have to add support.webshooter.se to your dns server settings, these are the dns servers for webshooter.se.
Code:
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns1.namesystem.se.
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns2.namesystem.se.
webshooter.se.        23326    IN    NS    ns3.namesystem.se.
I suspect that you host your domain on the dns server of the hosting provider where you bought it, usually you have a webinterface were you can add/remove/modify dns records. Looking at the information of the ip adress of the first dns server it hosted by the provider "GleSYS".
So I would expect that you have some sort of login account that you can login an account there to manage your dns records. That will also be where webshooter.se is defined, so this record.
Code:
webshooter.se.        3600    IN    A    185.157.223.140
Glad that it's just for personal learning and voluntary working, that's a great wait to gain experience! :)

Yes, I will try to get in touch with Glesys and update the dns records.
Thanks again my friend.

Right, learned a lot, or actually, helped me to remember. Was many, many years ago I handled this kind of problem. You know, I'm 78 years of age. ;) But still going strong. Have been working among a few others on this Laravel-based system for pistol competition since last november.

Quite impressive for someone your age! :) If you like you can post a topic in the introduction section so you can meet some of the other members.

I wonder, do you know what could be the problem when I use swedish characters in nano everything goes crazy. In the picture, have two identical lines, I place my marker over the first ö and types an a.
All the other ö there disappears replaced by a ? and the cursor goes away to the right many places.
What can be the problem. Difficult to edit swedish text as you can understand.
Also this: "skapa ta?^hvlingar ma?^jste" --- is really ---"skapa tävlingar måste"

I don't use nano so wouldn't know and I don't use foreign characters. Could you create a new topic for that problem/question, so that someone else who has experience with foreign characters will see it and can help you out with that.
