Website Redirect

Company A owns example domain @ GoDaddy: www.domain.com

www.domain.com is hosted & maintained elsewhere by Company B

Company A needs a special landing page at www.domain.com/marketing/thing and Company B says they can't accommodate for some reason

Can Company A purchase a simple hosting account @ GoDaddy and use a redirect (even though DNS settings for "@" = Company B's IP address) so everything that hits www.domain.com/marketing/thing goes to hosting page at GoDaddy - and everything else function properly and still point to www.domain.com?

This is the part I do not get:
Company A owns example domain @ GoDaddy: www.domain.com

www.domain.com is hosted & maintained elsewhere by Company B
How could this happen?  It sounds like Company B owns the domain.

Please step away from the theoretical stuff and tell us the true domain names.  Then we can research the DNS settings, examine the HTML documents and give you accurate advice.  Thanks, ~Ray

Unless you have access to the domain that has www.domain.com/marketing/thing then there is nothing you can do.

I recently worked on a Wordpress site that utilized the popular ContactForm7 (https://contactform7.com/) plug-in that only sends an email and does not save data. The client wanted the data saved to a custom CRM database. This is my solution.
