    Hi,

    I'm asking this message to find out how CPanel adds subdomains to a particular domain.

    My hosting company uses CPanel to give administration stuff to my account.

    My DNS is with another service provider and so I wanted to know how I could add a particular subdomain with my new hosting provider (keeping my DNS where it is) and be able to use it.

    Since I can make subdomains in my new hosting account:

    backup.site.com

    And in my zone file, i will make a CNAME to my hosting companies server.

    IN CNAME backup.sit...

    Should this process work ?

    Also I only get the add domain name button and setup redirection, how can i point to a particular file on my machine?
