This question already has an answer here:
I have a situation where we need to point a sub domain to a different hosting provider.
The main website
www.mainwebsite.example is being hosted with HostingProvider1 and now we have another application
www.example.com which is hosted with HostingProvider2. We want this application to be accessible only via
I am not sure how this can be done at DNS level. Our main domain which is
www.mainwebsite.example is hosted with Network Solutions, I am not sure if I can make
www.mainwebsite.example/application on DNS level to point to a different hosting provider.
If it was
application.mainwebsite.example then it would be simple as I can change the
CNAME record. But in this case the client wants
www.mainwebsite.example/application to point to different hosting.
Not sure if this is possible only at DNS level.
