Redirecting to another URL

Our company owns a domain, xyzcompany.com. Someone here mistakenly put a totally incorrect URL on a bunch of printed material. Is there a way to redirect this incorrect URL to our server.

The URL was supposed to be: xyzcompany.com/promotionABC.html

The incorrect URL reads: xyzcompany/promotionABC.com

Even if we bought the domain "promotionABC.com" (which we DON'T want to do), can you point to something like xyzcompany/promotionABC.com??

Thanks,
Uomobello

Unfourtunately, a slash is an illegal character to a domain name.  So, xyzcompany/promotionABC.com, would simply try to resolve as a host using the clients DNS suffix search list, assuming they had one configured.

There really isn't anyway to correct this, short of your own local network.

Thanks... I was afraid of this. At least I'm not the guy who had the wrong URL printed.
