Hi

I want to add a blog to my site. I was thinking of putting the blog as a subdomain on a server with a different IP, and the subdomain would be hosted elsewhere. Is this possible? Can I configure the DNS settings on cPanel/WHM to do this? Or do I have to buy another domain for the new blog?
Can someone please advise me?

Thanks

The answer is yes you can.
Say you have the main domain on server A(mydomain.com), create another domain on server B(mydomain.com)
Then go to ServerA -> DNS Functions -> edit DNS zone -> scroll down to mydomain.com -> edit -> scroll down until you see "Add New Entries Below this Line" -> enter blog.mydomain.com -> select "A" record -> and enter the IP of the other servers domain.
