Website Access

I've created a domain pointer for our patient portal which points to an ip address on the internet.   However when the patient navigates to the website they have to add additional information to the address to get there.  How can I solve this  ....

They have to enter https://portal.companyname.com/abcportal   ,   I'd like them to only have to enter https://portal.companyname.com  and it directs them to the correct place.

Thanks .....

Do you have the option where you domain pointer is to create an Alias?

Alias: https://portal.companyname.com 
Refers to Host Name:  https://portal.companyname.com/abcportal

If you're using Apache, this can easily be done with mod_rewrite.

In IIS you would use HTTP Redirect.
