How to do it?

1. Login to WHM
2. Click on Edit DNS Zone on the side navigation.
3. Choose the domain to edit, and click on the Edit button.
4. Under Add New Entries Below this Line add this:
Domain: *
TTL: 14400 (this is the default value)
Record Type: A in (your IP address)
5. Submit and this will now be added.
6. Access your httpd.conf file. Login as root, via SSH.
7. To access the file in a CPanel server go to:
# cd /etc/httpd/conf/
8. Use your favorite text editor, or just simply type:
# pico httpd.conf
9. Do a find on your domain and you may find something like this:

<VirtualHost ip.ip.ip.ip>
DocumentRoot /home/yourdoma/public_html
BytesLog domlogs/
User yourdoma
Group yourdoma
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/yourdoma/public_html/cgi-bin/

On the line:


Change to:

ServerAlias: *

10. Exit or press Ctrl X if using Pico.
11. Save the file when asked and replace the existing file.
12. Restart the apache web server by typing in:
# service httpd restart

Done! You are all set to go. Wildcard DNS Enabled on a CPanel Server
