    Hi,

    When you create a subdomain that subdomain is created under the user of the main domain.
    What is the recommended way to create a subdomain with it's own user/group? I need this for security purposes.

    Plan is to create a new user and group from command line and assign that user to all the files/folders in the subdomain. Maybe there is an easier with whm/Cpanel

    Thank you

    You can create a subdomain using its own cPanel account. Is that what you seek?

    Could be, wasn't sure that is an option
    I'll give it a try, assuming it's the same as creating a domain
