Wildcard DNS Entry + Wildcard Server Alias (Such as for WordPress MultiSite)

WordPress support documents state that you are required to add a wildcard entry for Apache in the httpd.conf as well as in your DNS zone to use WordPress MultiSite on subdomains. On a cPanel server this process is extremely simple as you can accomplish this in only a few simple steps.

    1. Log into your cPanel account.
    2. Click on "Subdomains" under the "Domains" group.
    3. Enter a single "*" into the subdomain line and choose which domain you wish to add the wildcard to in the drop-down box. (Demonstration Image)
    4. Click "Create"
You have now added a wildcard subdomain entry to your DNS zone with us as well as the Apache configuration file (httpd.conf).
