Drupal 7. I have a multi-language website. Let's call it website.com.

At admin/config/regional/language/configure/url I have selected "Path prefix" as the "Part of the URL that determines language".

My host is using nginx. The hosting company has configured the site so that when I go to my Spanish language url (let's call it sitio-web-en-español.com) the browser ends up at website.com.

What I would like it to do is end up at website.com/es so that the users have Spanish language immediately without having to use the language switcher.

My question: Can I do this within Drupal or do I need to get my hosting company to change their configuration?

Thank you!

... and it seems to work fine.
