Learn to configure a subdomain to a separate IP address. Very useful for sites with shopping carts who want store.theirsite.com to look like it's on the same server.

Learn to configure a subdomain to a separate IP address. Very useful for sites with shopping carts who want store.theirsite.com to look like it's on the same server. Requirements: Cpanel Control Panel and WHM access.

Example: domainame.com is hosted on server A but the shopping cart store is on server B. You need to make it look like domainname.com is also on server B. Setup a subdomain to point to a differernt ip address and voila!

1. Edit the Domains DNS Zone
Login to your WHM control panel or manually through SSH and edit a DNS zone, select the domain you wish to modify.

2. Adding the A Record
Create a new record for the subdomain Eg: Type in store for the name, select A record type and then type in the IP address you need it to mask to.

A Entry

3. Ensure it Works
Make sure there isn't an actual subdomain created in the users account that you're trying to point to a different IP address or the pointer/mask will not work!

    Reg, and Blazin Barrels, are one heck of a great entity to deal with. I inquired a few months ago about a server for FarCry, and while the linux version has still not yet been released he has converted a server to Windows, to allow, this and other games to be played., I live on the West Coast, and have Excellent pings to the server. Rocket speed, friendly reliable service, and all around good people !
