you can use alternate access mapping to provide a user freindly name to the entire web application. however, if you are looking for some sub site to have a user freindly name, AAM will not work.

Yeah I found that, but it looks like its for toplevel sites not teamsites.

I have been trying to create it in DNS, but im clearly doing something wrong lol

The first expert is right, in that while you can set an AAM for an entire web application, you can't set one that affects just a particular subweb.

If you think about it, it would be the same if it were just a normal IIS site.  You can set a host header only on the root of a web site.  You can't set one on a folder, or virtual web.

The only way I can think of achieving it would be to have a second, non SharePoint site set up in IIS with your desired host header set on the site, create an empty folder structure that mirrors the hierarchy of your SharePoint site, then set a redirect at the required level.  Not an elegant solution by any means!
