I would like to have a subdomain off my main domain, that actually points to a different server (my own machine). Is it possible to do this through your service? For example, I want, or to go to my site set up here. But I want to point to my own server I run at my residence.

Hello birdjunior, and thanks for your question.

Yes you can setup a subdomain to point to a different server by setting up a DNS A record. You can use the following guide for how to set this up using cPanel's Simple DNS Zone Editor:

Add a DNS A record

Please let us know if you have any further questions at all.
