In most cases, we have a dns record for stuff like;
The user simply goes to that dns record to reach the destination. Normal dns stuff. However, the IPs of those destinations sometimes change and dns propagation can take a while in some cases. Yet, we need to give users instant access to the sites which have changed IP. Using ddns services is not an option and is not the question either.
The question then, is there a way of doing some kind of redirect/dns trickery to use a web server to forward requests to the changed IP sites even though they have not propagated, without their using our dns server.
They would connect to our web server using xxx.domain.com and should be redirected to which ever server xxx is now pointing to.
For instance could dnsmasq installed on the same webserver and the two working together somehow redirect the user to the new IP/domain www.newdomain.com?
