    The domain name of my business partner in China is example.com. This domain is for their server in China.

    We wish to point abc.example.com to http://example.org/abc on my server in USA.

    How do I set up this in cPanel of example.org? What is needed to be done in the server of example.com?

    Hello @SuperBaby,

    Does the destination need to be a sub-directory as opposed to a subdomain? If not, you could create "abc.example.org" as a subdomain in cPanel and set it's document root to /home/user/public_html/abc. Then, update the "abc" A record at example.com's DNS provider to the IP address assigned to the cPanel account associated with "abc.example.org".

    Thank you.
