    Hi!

    I want to know if the following is possible with cPanel. If I have the following domain structure

    - example.org
    - sub.example.org
    - test1.sub.example.org
    - test2.sub.example.org

    is it possible to have sub.example.org as it's own zone file, as the number of "test" entries under it could become quite large and I want to have it manageable.

    If it is possible, what is the best way for me to set this up?

    Thanks!

    Jason

    Hello,

    Yes, You can add separate DNS zone for your sub-domain through WHM >> DNS Functions >> Add DNS Zone

    Hello :)

    Yes, it's possible to have a separate DNS Zone for a subdomain. You will need to remove the existing "A" entry for this subdomain in the primary domain name's DNS Zone before adding the separate zone.

    Thank you.
