Link a cname/a record to a webspace folder


How would I go about linking a CNAMe / A record to a webspace folder?


DNS doesn’t point to folders – only IP addresses (basically).

Can you be more specific in your example? By using Page Rules, you can create a subdomain…or even a main domain…that forwards to a folder in a different domain.

If you’re trying to mask the destination domain and present it as something else…no. You could frame it, but it wouldn’t perform like a regular site, nor receive any of Cloudflare’s benefits.


I’m not familiar with the term webspace, but it appears like it might be something 1and1 uses? Here’s a link to their KB article on how to do that linkage:
