I am helping to run a minecraft server. All minecraft ports go to a specific IP address. All others mail, www, etc should go to another IP address that hosts the website. I want to direct all web traffic to the forums site instead of the minecraft server itself.

Example:

Minecraft server
111.111.111.111
Handling ports 25565, 1, and 1337 for servername.com

Web Server
222.222.222.222
Handling web services for servername.com

Right now, requests going to servername.com go to 111.111.111.111. I would like http traffic bound for servername.com and forums.servername.com to hit 222.222.222.222

I believe this should be done using CNAME records. What is the best way to handle these pointers to redirect traffic correctly?
