Hosting the same domain from different servers

    Hi,

    I'm planning to launch a new website and I want to make country specific versions of it in the future.

    I'd like to avoid using country specific domains so I want them to be available like this:
    SEMrush
    mysite.com/en/ (for English speakers)
    mysite.com/ru/ (for Russian speakers)
    mysite.com/fr/ (for French speakers)

    and so on....

    My question is, is it possible to use different servers for these versions? For example, I'd like to rent a server in Russia for the mysite.com/ru
    but I want the mysite.com/fr/ to be served from a server in France.

    Thanks

    Why not sub-domains each pointing their A records to servers in different countries:
    fr.mysite.com -> pointing to your France server IP address
    ru.mysite.com -> pointing to your Russian server IP address
    etc...

    For a sub directory I doubt you can host from different servers. As suggested by Shagoon creating a sub domain and pointing them to different locations is an ideal solution.
