why server.domain.com can't be created as sub-domain in cpanel/whm?
intro : i have the a/c "domain.com" created by cpanel and i want to add "server.domain.com" as sub-domain but fail
reason : when server name is requested as a url, there's always a need to show some critical stuff like dns setup to the users. so i doubt the idea of restricting server name a/c to be created by cpanel/whm. is it really non-sense or insecure to setup such "server-name" a/c?
my solution : i end up adding a vhost record in apache httpd.conf for "server.domain.com" and all spare ips(not used for ns of a/c), pointing them to /home/domain/public_html/server w/ mod_rewrite to catch all kind of silly request like server.domain.com/joe/whateverucanimagine and xx.xx.xx.xx to a single html page
disadvantage : the downside for manual addition of vhosts in apache httpd.conf is cpanel won't report stats of domians and subdomains not created by it
how can i have similar config in a much better approach?
