Simple WP question: Multisite needed for subdomain?

This is probably well documented, but I feel lazy today, and some of you probably know the answer from the top of your head:

I need to host a Wordpress site that serves different static pages for different subdomains, like location1.my.site and location2.my.site, but I don’t need separate user accounts/privileges etc.
Do I still need Multisite WP install to serve my.site/locationX at/as locationX.my.site? :thinking: :smiley:

I would fix that with DNS :wink:

I know DNS pretty well (I think), but fail to see how. :thinking: CNAME’s and A records won’t do HTTP redirects …
Something obvious I’m missing? :nerd_face:

HTTP redirects could work, but could/would be messy. (Different WP pages/posts in the same Wordpress installation being shown when accessing different subdomains.)
