    Website A is the main website with hundreds of pages. Website B contains 8 replacement (promotional) pages and should be live for a few months. Website B homepage should replace Website A homepage for this period. All the pages except the 8 replacement pages should be available online. Website B will contain links to subpages of Website A.
    SEMrush
    Website A currently on Sharepoint 2010 and Website B will be WordPress - these can live on the same server or different servers.

    Is it possible to have the DNS point to the homepage of Website B while the webpages of Website A is still accessible. When the user types in www.example.com they should no longer land on the homepage of Website A but on the homepage of Website B. If they click on the links on homepage Website B they should be able to access the relevant pages on Website A.

    DNS is not capable of pointing domains to specific pages. At DNS level you can only point the domains/subdomains to the server where the websites are hosted, where depending on the web server, you can create specific virtual hosts, redirect rules, etc..

    If you want to do a redirect of example.com to website B, and want to access example.com/page on website A, then it won't work.

    You can however keep website A on example.com, and put a code in the HTML of website A homepage to redirect to example-B.com pointing to website B.

    That way when someone clicks a link on website B, like example.com/page, it will still work.

    You can do a 301 redirect of website A homepage to website B homepage, in case you want to pass something something for SEO purposes...
