Directing a subdomain to a specific page

I would like to set up a subdomain, call it rewards.heartland.org.

I would like to set this up so someone who types rewards.heartland.org is immediately taken to a specific page (not just an IP address): http://store.heartland.org/shop/rewards-how-to-use-rewards-to-help-children-learn-and-why-teachers-dont-use-them-often-enough/

The idea is to make it easier for people typing the URL!

Can this be done?

You can create the subdomain (over cPanel, for example) and then create a redirection for this subdomain.

Does this makes sense for you?

Not really, I'm afraid. Would this be something I would ask our website host to do, or the nameserver?

You should contact your website to manage this, but you should contact probably the nameserver to add the subdomain (and the website host provider to manage it).

That does make sense, thanks! Basically splitting it into two steps -- that's what I couldn't get my arms around. Really appreciated the quick response!
