    1) Add a DNS A-Record for "exemple" in the dns zone "site.com" which points to the IP address of your vps.

    2) Then add either a new website in ispconfig were you enter "exemple.site.com" in the domain field to create a nwe site or add a subdomain for "exemple.site.com" if thsi subdomain shall point to a exsiting website.

    thank you very much :)
    i have tried to do this with "A record" did not work well..
    where it gives me the default page of the server
    & does not explore my files existing in :
    /data01/web/www/clients/client0/web445/web

    so, any one you mean ? :
    CNAME record
    A record
    AAAA record
    MX record
    SRV record

    or any other ?

    thank you again :)

    Add a A-record like I explained above, no other records.
