I am wanting to setup a sub domain from my current cPanel server onto another cPanel server, I am aware that I can do this with an "A" record in the DNS server but how do I go about defining which folder on the remote server is used. The A record I know I need to do is...

sub.domain.com 14400 000.000.000.000 (IP address of sub domain server)

Thanks.

if the remote is a cpanel server, too, you can create a subdomain account the same way you would create a regular domain account.

Sorry I think I must be missing something, I know how to update the DNS record on the local server and know how to create a sub domain on the remote cPanel server but how do I specify which sub domain on the remote cPanel server to use?

For example...

Local Domain: example.com
Remote cPanel Domain: example.net
Sub Domain Required: crm.example.com (to be hosted on example.net)

How do I achieve that, if that example makes sense, thanks.

I assumed you had your own server.

do you have access to WHM (Webhost Manager)? That's the admin panel used to add new accounts.

the only way I use subdomains is by adding them as separate accounts. if you don't have WHM access, maybe someone else can help.
