    I already create a sub-domain under cPanel and want now to provide a dedicated IP for this sub-dom.

    Do I have just to add a dns entry for the sub-domain and assign a IP?

    Learn to configure a subdomain to a separate IP address. Very useful for sites with shopping carts who want to look like it's on the same server. Requirements: Cpanel Control Panel and WHM access.

    Example: is hosted on server A but the shopping cart store is on server B. You need to make it look like is also on server B. Setup a subdomain to point to a differernt ip address and voila!

    1. Edit the Domains DNS Zone
    Login to your WHM control panel or manually through SSH and edit a DNS zone, select the domain you wish to modify.

    2. Adding the A Record
    Create a new record for the subdomain Eg: Type in store for the name, select A record type and then type in the IP address you need it to mask to.

    A Entry

    3. Ensure it Works
    Make sure there isn't an actual subdomain created in the users account that you're trying to point to a different IP address or the pointer/mask will not work!
