DNS Redirection - BIND / Fedora

I am currently redirecting at the server level on an IIS machine, however those machines are being phased out.

Currently, I'm redirecting a domain name like http://renew.ourdomain.com to point to https://anotherhost/ourcompany/adotnetpage.aspx?something=something

Is there any way to do this at the DNS level, using CNAMEs or something similar?  I know that you can redirect to another host, but can you drill down and redirect to a specific page using SSL?

I am running 5 BIND 9 servers on Fedora Core 6 machines.

I'm lost...thanks for anyone's help.

I don't understand then, how can my domain registrar (register.com, etc) do it?  They have say 'davesdomain.com' actually point to "http://myotherhost.com/daves/" and this is done on the DNS level because I set it up on the domain host.  I use this on tons of my domains, I just want to implement it myself on my business network since I run the DNS servers.

It can't be done through DNS. Registrars, like register.com and godaddy.com, provide a service where they will redirect a DNS record to a specific URL. But they are not using DNS to accomplish that. It is a web service that performs the redirection.
