    Can I do this with a CNAME?


    I have searched everywhere. How can I point example.com/sample to sample.example.com? CNAME?
    Thanks

    You cannot do it with DNS. Set up your webserver to redirect users accordingly.

    With the help of DNS you can do it

    • Scorpions4ever disagrees : No you can't. You don't really understand how DNS works, do you?

    Errr... Technically this isn't something DNS can do, it only understands hostnames and IPs - not server directories.

    A lot of MDNS providers, like Zoneedit for example, have WebForward services wherein they'll send your traffic to a server and redirect for you.

    CNAME is simply hostname to hostname.
