DNS forward to user directory
I'm hosting the DNS records for a domain, but the webserver is on an ISPs server. Is there a way that I can have a DNS entry for www.sitename.com that would point to www.users.qwest.net/~user/ ? I've gotten it to work without the /~user/ using CNAME, but it won't work with the directory attached. I'm using Bind 8.

It has nothing to do with the DNS, which it's related to web server by Apache's vhost, IIS and etc..

/~user/ is illegal syntax in FQDN as it can't contain any path.
