    HI

    I am trying to configure my DNS to manage my clients subdomain so that it routes users to the correct site.

    Let me explain my question by way of an example:

    I host abc.com for my client.
    My client's main domain is 123.com
    They want abc.123.com to point to the site i host for them.
    I gave them my servers ip 123.456.789.101

    But where/how do i configure my server to respond to abc.123.com correctly?

    Do i use the Parked Domain feature or do i Add a DNS Zone file duplicating the one i have from abc.com but changing it to abc.123.com?

    Thanks for you help.

    Hello :)

    The DNS should be configured at the DNS hosting provider for "123.com". You would simply create the subdomain on the cPanel server. You could either create it as a new account, or add it as a addon/subdomain to an existing account.

    Thank you.
