    Hi,

    Do I need to create a subdomain in cpanel when I create a subdomain A record in my remote managed DNS zone?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    im not sure if i understand correct ?

    1. you host your domain on other dns server.
    2. you just host the main domain on your cpanel server.

    if it is correct,
    when you want to add a sub-domain to other serve,
    you need add a a record on the dns server and point to remote server's ip,
    you do not need add the sub-domain on the cpanel server.

    Hi @Michael Robinson

    That depends on where the subdomain is pointed amongst other things, can you elaborate on what you're trying to do?

    Thanks!
