Hi people! i would like to know how can i create a record in my DNS that
points a specific URL to another, for example

Example: My domain is domain.com , and i want that exchange.xxx.com points
to exchangeserver.xxx.com/exchange when i put that address in the ie. Is
there any way to do this?

Thanks

Pablo César.

To redirect a URL such as what you want to do would need to be done either
in a web page or thru IIS. DNS cannot redirect to a URL. Maybe a 3rd party
tool?

Redirection such as that would be handled through HTML ... actually, through
a META tag. For example:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="5; URL=mynewpage.html">

Or, in your case:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="5;
URL=http://exchangeserver.xxx.com/exchange">

The "5" indicates to wait 5 seconds before redirecting. The URL value is the
target. To satisfy the older browsers that do not support the meta tag, also
be sure to include a link on the page saying something to the effect of "If
your browser is an antique, click here."

Here's a few other examples if you are interested:
