redirect domain service on different IPs

johnm07 asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I recently removed a website from an internal server and moved it to a off site hosted server.
My problem, I need to continue to accept web service traffic hosted on the internal web server. So both the website and the webservice use the same domain but are located on different servers.

Website address was configured as - www.domainname.com
webservice address was configured as - www.domainname.com/webservice 

Since the web service is not a subdomain, I'm not sure how to properly set a DNS record to direct that traffic to the internal server while still directing website traffic to the hosted website.

Thanks in advance.
