    Hi, I am very sorry for opening this old thread but I am facing problem with what OP mentioned... in some way.

    For some strange reason, google indexing my website to, I dont know how to resolve this. If I set CNAME to A in DNS, will this change or the page (from google) will now become mail.mydomainIP ? :/

    How to make wont show my website and redirect to ? If I add redirection in htaccess, this whatever reason is used for wont work?

    Thank you :)

    Hello :)

    You could delete the DNS entries for "mail", and then add it as a subdomain to the account via cPanel:

    Subdomains - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    You can then choose which page loads, or to redirect the subdomain to the destination of your preference.

    Thank you.
