Your hosting provider can provide Framed Url Forwarding.

Another option is to use URL Rewriting.  Have you tried either of these options?

This is quite indepth with further links in article to take it further.  The helicon isapi rewrite lite is very good.  If you are looking for extensionless url rewriting then you can do using whats called a Wildcard Handler and also a HTTP module inside ASP.NET

Some good reading there.  

Regular Expressions are something which are used extensively in url rewriting, but if you are not to conversant with them, there is a tool in that article where you can easily state your url rewrites you want.
