Setup ISC Bind to Direct all queries to one webpage

I work for an small ISP and we are trying to setup a way to send our blocked customers to only one website no matter what they type in their address bar.

Basically we are setting up a profile in our Radius that assigns the delinquent customer a different DNS address that will respond to all queries with the same address or webpage that lets them know that they are delinquent.

So my problem is I'm not very good with setting up bind and I want to get this to work.

If someone could tell me what to put in the named.conf file as well as anything else I would have to do to make this work I would appreciate it.

There's an example of doing exactly this in the Netreg package, see

I looked around a bit but I couldn't find what you are talking about.  Can you point me to the exact place or explain it for me?

You'll need do download and unpack the NetReg distribution. If you read the setup instructions you'll find the section on setting up a Bind server that makes any and all hostnames resolve to a single IP. The named.conf and such for doing this are in the distribution.
