What do you want to achieve? mydomain.X.Y.Z/A  seems very long to me too.

Why you have a forward zone like x.y.z ?  just y.z seems enough where you can create a simple a record called i.e. www which point to the ip address of your webserver.

In that case you can browse to www.y.z and see the website (once this address is also bound to the website in IIS.

Hello

Cname is simply a shortcut like you have to apps on your desktop.

By making

Friendly-name Cname Long-unfriendly-name

You just make new record that tells DNS client to ask once more.

In IIs you should have a name of actual website hosted (the unfriendly) as client will come to ask for it as it got redirected by Cname.

If you want to add DNS like:

Mydomain.tesing.com/A
Mydomain.tesing.com/B
Mydomain.tesing.com/C

To point something or CNAME to some IP Or domain.

Its not possible (As per my knowledge).

Hi

What you are refering is a web redirect. Cname only works with FQDN (fully qualified domain name) to FQDN.
