The usual trick for this is to use group policy to setup dummy proxies. Configure a proxy server for all protocols - use something like 127.0.0.2 or another invalid IP address.
Then configure an exception to this proxy and enter the site that you want the users to access.
Finally, use group policy to set the home page as the site you want them to access.
