% Our domain name is domain.com.
% We want to create a subdomain called sub.domain.com
% Our subdomain will have a host called host1
% Instead of creating a new subdomain under domain.com called sub, lets say
% that we place an A record in the domain.com zone file and name it host1.sub
% Now we have an FQDN of host1.sub.domain.com which gives the appearance that
% a subdomain exists without really creating it.
% What I'm looking for is just some feedback on this practice. My thinking
% would be that you woudn't want to do this but I'd like to hear what the
% experts have to say about it.

Nothing wrong with this practice. Works a treat, has for years
and is a useful tool to have.
