    I'm trying to take a domain hosted at GoDaddy, and create a sub domain that will map to a second domain on a cPanel server.

    domain.tld <-- hosted on GoDaddy

    my.domain.tld --> goes to mycpaneldomain.tld

    Is this possible?

    I finally figured it out.

    I setup a cname record in my GoDaddy hosting account to point to the cpanel domain:

    my.domain.tld => mycpaneldomain.tld

    Then in the DNS Zone for mycpaneldomain.tld I setup an A record to point back to the IP of the domain:

    my.domain.tld A 1400 1.2.3.4


    ... and after flushing the DNS on my computer and clearing my browser cache I was able to get to the subdomain like I wanted.

    So now if I got to my.domain.tld or mycpaneldomain.tld I get the same site :)
