I would like to forward anyone going to subdomain.old-domain.com:8014 to this new address subdomain.new-domain.com:8000/subdirectory (note a different domain AND different port PLUS a subdirectory)

Is it possible in a web host (such as Bluehost) using cPanel DNS Editor or some form of URL redirection with port redirect included?


It depends if Bluehost allows port redirection using an .htaccess file, try this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^subdomain.old-domain.com$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^8014$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://subdomain.new-domain.com:8000/subdirectory/$1 [R=301,L]
