Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Dagawu, all DNS is, is a way to resolve names to IP addresses. You cannot make it resolve directly to a specific path on a website. However you can still make this work with a workaround.

All you do is setup your DNS record to resolve to the IP address of your web server. Then using your web server software, configure the default page for the web site to be that specific web page. Then when people go to your site it will automatically take them to that web page.
