This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

That has nothing to do with DNS, you'll need to do that in Apache or Ngnix, or some other program that deals with http requests. – NickW Jun 14 '13 at 10:28

I'll give you a simple example, and a link to where to find more RewriteEngine on – NickW Jun 14 '13 at 10:37
RewriteRule ^/$ /?pageid=16 [R] – NickW Jun 14 '13 at 10:38
No, not at all. This is information that goes into your httpd.conf, or into an .htaccess file. It requires that you have administrative access to your server, and also in this case, requires that you are running apache. If you don't know anything about that, I recommend you read the page I posted, and possibly the rest of the documentation on that site. – NickW Jun 14 '13 at 11:01
