Link a cname/a record to a webspace folder


#1

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: https://help.1and1.com/domains-c36931/manage-domains-c79822/domain-destination-c38672/connect-your-domain-to-your-website-webspace-a599292.html
