I have pointed a subdomain directly at the IP of my cPanel server.
Checked it with dig, the subdomain points there.

I created a new Account in WHM, used the defaults.
Checked in DNS Zones, there is automatically an A record for the domain and it shows the DNS provider for the subdomain.

When I ping the subdomain it looks like it finds the IP, but doesn't resolve beyond that.

$ ping sub.domain.cloud
