how to setup a dns forward record to point to a subdomain so my internal network can access it?

my domain is domain.com. I have a dns record "www" forwarded to an external ip so that my internal network can access "www.domain.com" main page. The question is how do i setup a dns record to "ww2.domain.com"? They both uses the same ip address but "www2.domain.com" has a different landing page. so if i setup a dns record "ww2" to the same web address, it's not going to work.

You can have as many DNS A records as you like going to the same IP.

On the web server, you would you use Host Headers for each site you create.

Your second landing page should be a separate site on the web server, add a host header = to www2.domain.com

Though host headers is the better option you can create a Cname record that points ww2 to  www.domain.com\Page1

The 1st comment clearly stated that you could have as many DNS A records as you like going to the same IP

This is the same as your own conclusion that you added an additional FWD record to the same IP.
