URL forwarding/masking in Linux

I have a dedicated server running Linux ES3 and running my own nameserver. I want to be able to do some simple URL forwarding and masking. In other words, let's say I have a domain name called www.MyNewSite.com. When someone visits www.MyNewSite.com I want the URL in the browser address bar to say www.MyNewSite.com but I want the page http://www.OtherWebsite.com?id=399393&page=dkfjjjj to be loaded. How can I do this in Linux?

This is not easily possible.

If files is in same domain, you can do it with .htaccess with following content.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^$ /?id=399393&page=dkfjjjj

Since the page is on another domain, the solution is symlink to that folder from your site, then specify that path, that is on document directory of your new site do

ln -s /path/to/file-of-other-site-doc-root othersite  [L]

Then in .htaccess

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^$ /othersite/?id=399393&page=dkfjjjj  [L]

You can load the page in FRAME.

The page will have an order button on it so I don't want the user to then try to load the secure order page up in a frame. I also don't have control of the HTML on this page so I can't force things to open up in a new window. I am hoping for a solution using .htacess or DNS since that is where I do have control.
