How to point a server name to an external website?

We have an internal server which has been moved to cloud. User type the server name like ABC in the browser they open the page in the past, however they need to enter a long website address to open the page now.

I tried to create the cloud domain zone on the internal DNS to point the internal server name to the external server IP, however the webpage is not the default website. There is a specific folder on the cloud for the website like https:\CloudServer\folder1\folder2\test.html.

My question is how I can point the server name to the page https:\CloudServer\folder1\folder2\test.html? My user want the page on the cloud open when the type the internal server's name. Is it possible and how to approach it?

Please help!

Thanks in advance!
