I have been asked to provide the following for our web server.
A clients specific directory, we will call bigcompany, has a directory located on our webserver. So when the client goes to the url: server.domainname.net/bigc
The bigcompany directory has all the site pages, etc that most web hosting server do. Now the client wants to use their own server for hosting but still have the original url: server.domainname.net/bigc
Question: can this be configured using a CNAME? If so what are the procedures. I have configured a CNAME in the past but it was for a complete site not just a directory. So previously i had something similar to this:
The url is w2.domainname.com which points via cname to www.otherserver.com
. And the url w2.domainname.com is always listed in the url address bar. So the end user never knows that the site is on a different server.
Thanks of the help.
