    Hi,

    I tried to create CNAME pointing to other sub domain name, but it redirected to /cgi/defaultwebpage.cgi

    My Senario:

    shop.mydomain.com --> myshopname.otherdomain.com(hosted somewhere)

    kindly advise, thanks

    Hello,

    Do you have any additional DNS entries for that specific subdomain within the zone, or in it's own DNS zone? Does the subdomain resolve to the cPanel server's IP address?

    Thank you.
