Hide external server IP under subdomain URL

0 votes
Hi, I have a domain, with a subdomain "subdomain.mydomain.co.za"
i have set up an A record for the subdomain that points the browser to the IP address of an external server which has the web application i want to use, however when i go to subdomain.mydomain.co.za the url changes to the IP address of the server, which i dont want. Is there any way to keep the IP hidden and only show the subdomain URL?

 

thanks

Good day,

I trust you are well,

The ability to mask a subdomain that points to an external server may not be possible, however
