    The the best of my knowledge this is not possible in DNS at all.  You could however point to webserver and redirect from there to where ever you like.  You can use a redirect via the server (ie 301 redirect) or via a header redirect like in php for example. If you need more specific directions please provide a detailed example of what you are trying to accomplish.

    No, I don't think so.

    Of course my above comment was assuming HTTP or HTTPS as your protocol.
