DNS - IIS

Hi

I have an internal app on an IIS server on windows 2008 it has a bit of a long winded way of getting to it via a browser so its servername\appname\menu is there anyway maybe within DNS that i can just type in say appmnew into a browser and it brings it up?

thanks

When you are publishing the website on IIS it should bind with IP address and also you can provide the Host header.

Go to DNS ( if your IIS server is part of Domain ) and create a DNS A record entry

e.g. 10.1.1.1   and appnew.com

A 10.1.1.1 appnew.com

You will need to use folder redirection on the root/virtual directory of the website.  You can then point it to the appropriate folder
