Sounds like a CNAME will do what you need

I have tried getting this setup working but still to no avail. I'm positive there is a way of doing it, the idea seems so simple.
On my domain I have setup a subdomain of app.mydomain.com. I did this using cPanel. cPanel create the associated A records automatically.
In my customers cPanel I have setup a CNAME record of app.customerdomain.com pointing to app.mydomain.com.
This however doesn't work correctly. It is pointing to the right IP address (tested using ping) but I get the cPanel Default Web Page showing.
I'm guessing it's because my domain doesn't know where to point external requests to.

I think what you have left to do is set up an alias on your side so that it knows what to do with app.customerdomain.com
You can also do a catch all if that is the only thing on that IP address

Can you offer any advice on how to do that when using cPanel?
If I was hosting it myself and had direct access to apache files I'm sure I could do it.

ask the hosting company.

what paladin said.
you need to be able to configure multiple virtual hosts.

Thank you, I've contacted the hosting company. Hopefully they will come back with a positive answer.

It's working now, im really pleased.
I had to add customerdomain.com as a parked domain then create a subdomain of app.customerdomain.com. Pretty straight forward really.
I now need to work out how to access the MySQL database which is on the customers hosting.
