Currently web server is constructed on server.
Redirection from g to e is done by the name server level.
Also, is directed to and this is also by name server level.

Is it possible to do redirection from and to different web servers? needs to be redirected to while needs to be redirected to local server Is this possible? If so, how?

    Depending a bit on what you mean by redirection... DNS does not do redirection.

    That is, DNS cannot take a HTTP request for and change that to That requires a web server (something to answer the HTTP request).

    Considering that, you can do what you please with the redirection as long as you have access to the web service performing the redirection. The web server is capable of reading the address and URL used to access a site and redirect accordingly.

    Do you have access to the web server? Or is that handled elsewhere?
