    Hi,

    I have a client with an account on my cPanel server for exemple www.mydomain.com.

    My customer have a second domain (external) for exemple mydomain.eu and he want to know how to add only a only one "A" DNS entry in his an account for exemple www.mydomain.eu

    At the moment my client have added 'www' entry on the IP cPanel server but it points to the default page for cPanel and therefore not on its site.

    I note that my client just wants to point a subdomain and not park all the domain.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards.

    Why not just add a DNS zone for the IP number to where the external domain resides?

    I don't want to park the domain, just add an external virtual host.
