    Hi I am looking to make a redirection for multiple domains (not hosted on my CPANEL)

    to be redirected to a domain on cpanel

    like subdomain.extDomain.com will be redirected to interDomain.com

    where interDomain.com is defined on cpanel but the extdomain.com is not defined on cpanel.

    can i do that with cname record to be added to the extDomain or any other kind of DNS records?
    also can cpanel to detect such external domains redirects specially they are going to be big number (i can't define them one by one to the cpanel)

    Hello @ahmedhtml62,

    A CNAME record should work for the purpose you are seeking, but keep in mind you'd have to create the CNAME records for the external domains at their corresponding DNS hosting providers.

    You shouldn't have to make any changes on the cPanel & WHM server as long as the domain you are redirecting "to" already exists on the cPanel server.

    Thank you.
