Hi,

I have created a "subdomain" A Record in Godaddy.com to point to a server address where the account is hosted, how do I connect the hosting account for the required site in Cpanel?

Thanks!

is it possible to just create a new subdomain account only? the main site is hosting elsewhere... I'm presuming so...

Hello :)

Yes, you can create a new account in Web Host Manager using a subdomain name. No special instructions are required.

Thank you.

Are you sure there is not a script installed that has the domain configured incorrectly? Or, is there a custom redirect rule in place that is directing the subdomain to the incorrect URL?

Thank you.
