DNS is not WEB.  You would have to setup the web site so that there was a host header that hosted vonsai.domain.com as if it were a unique domain.  Then either create a web page with a META Refresh tag to redirect it to the www.name.com/~admin/index.asp page OR setup the web server software to automatically redirect this (IIS can do this, would be surpised if Apache couldn't).
