Subdomain redirecting instead of CNAME

In CloudFlare, I've setup a sub.domainA.com to CNAME to domainB.com. I've set sub.domainA.com as a parked domain for domainB.com inside WHM. However, going to sub.domainA.com does a 301 redirect to domainB.com instead of behaving like an alias / CNAME. What is going on?

I'm on CloudLinux.

Hi,


You have a CNAME for sub.domainA.com that points to domainB.com, so if the domainB.com is configured to display its name in the URL, no matter whether you have parked domain on it or subdomain that goes to this domain, it will display what is in the URL of the website that is configured on the main site...

Hello,

You should point the subdomain to the IP address of the cPanel server as an "A" record if you'd configured the domain name as an alias on the cPanel server.

Thank you.
