How can you create Framed URL Forwarding within the .htaccess file?

 I need to forward our entire website(home page redirect) to a different server.  I do not want it to show the new server in the address bar and I think this can done through frame forwarding through the .htaccess file, but I have not been able to find the right wording.  Every time I try one of the suggestions I find online I end up getting a syntax error once I ftp it up.  

These are the two best examples I have found and I can not get either to work:

<HTML>
<HEAD>

<TITLE>OUR COMPANY NAME</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<FRAMESET rows="100%,*" border=0 frameborder=0 framespacing=0>
<FRAME name=top src="http://OUR NEW SITE" noresize>
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>

or

<frameset rows="100%">
  <frame src="http://OUR NEW SITE">
</frameset>
<noframes>
  <body>Please follow <a href="http://OUR NEW SITE">link</a>!</body>
</noframes>
 
<HTML>
<FRAMESET ROWS="*,0" FRAMEBORDER=0 BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0>
<FRAME SRC="http://OUR NEW SITE"
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>

I was finally able to do frame forwarding via default.html instead of .htaccess and it works fine, most importantly it hides the forwarded name. IFRAME would have worked to, but would have taken more work for width and height.

Why not use an iFrame instead of actual frames?

Inside the IFRAME tag is what to display if the browser doesn't support IFRAMEs.
<IFRAME SRC="newpage.html" WIDTH=600 HEIGHT=600>
Your browser can't view iFrames, please go to <A HREF="newpage.html">our new page instead</A>.
</IFRAME>
