URL Forwarding/Url Frame with BIND?

Good morning,

I've recently set up BIND (DNS server) on a couple of linux boxes.  Some DNS providers offer a couple of services like "URL Forwarding" where you can make any domain forward to a specific URL.  I've also seen "URL Frame" where when the person enters the domain into their browser, not only are they redirected to a URL, but the domain stays the same in the browser, masking the actual URL they've been redirected to.  

My question:
Can these functions be accomplished using the BIND DNS server...and if so, how do you go about it?

No, bind cannot do this bind can only map names to ipaddresses and vice versa (and map maildomains to mailhosts).

Those DNS-Providers do this by pointing the apropriate page to their own webserver and do the url-forwarding/framing there.
