    What exactly is not working on the sub-domain? For me the domain is properly resolving in DNS and the site loads OK when tested in a browser. I have attached a screen shot for clarification.

    Now it works..

    Maybe when I switched the DNS on Domainmonster.
    Someone else said it worked, like 2 days ago but didn't work for me.

    I use OpenDNS.

    Before any other comments ...

    I must ask you why you are using a 3rd party DNS service?

    Cpanel is fully capable of managing it's own DNS and is much less complicated than having to manually setup DNS zone files and entries all the time and unless there is some specific reason to do so, I would not recommend using any DNS other than your own DNS inside the server or server cluster that is already built and working inside Cpanel / WHM.

    Now regarding the other comments in this thread ----

    It takes on average 24 to 72 hours for domain names to transfer when you change the DNS servers or web site IP address and during this initial period, some people will see the new location while others will try to connect to the old location and has to do with route caching more than anything and whether or not your ISP uses fresh resolver information.
