    I have a question about subdomain mapping. (I think that's what its called) I have it working for one subdomain but not another that is set up the same


    I own 2 domains
    masterdigger.com - hosted one place
    master-digger.com - hosted at another place

    where masterdigger.com is hosted they have setup
    forum.masterdigger.com CNAME IN forum.master-digger.com
    blog.masterdigger.com CNAME IN blog.master-digger.com

    where master-digger.com is hosted I have a reseller account
    I have gone to WHM and set up the following accounts.
    master-digger.com
    forum.master-digger.com
    blog.master-digger.com

    Note that the subdomains are created in WHM and not Cpanel because I want a separate account for each

    subdomain to avoid having a messy subdirectories in the master-digger.com account.

    I then went to WHM (not CPanel) and parked each subdomain.
    For example;
    Domain to park on top of = forum.master-digger.com
    Domain to Park= forum.masterdigger.com

    Domain to park on top of = blog.master-digger.com
    Domain to park = blog.masterdigger.com

    forum.masterdigger.com works perfect and the URL in the browser shows forum.masterdigger.com even

    though I am actually using my forum.master-digger.com hosting.

    however blog.masterdigger.com does not work correctly. As soon as I go to blog.masterdigger.com the

    URL changes to blog.master-digger.com with the dash in it.

    I've set these 2 up identically and haven't screwed around with the DNS settings in CPANEL or WHM.

    nslookup also gives a similar response for both subdomains indicating that they should be mapped in a similar fashion

    Any ideas why they behave differently and how I can get the blog.masterdigger.com working similarly to forum.masterdigger.com?

    nslookup masterdigger.com
