How can I forward from my newly registered domain name?

Hi, I've registered a new domain name that has an option to forward...

I've got an IIS7 server and currently using a dynamic address through dyndns.com (This will change when I get a static IP address).

My question:
When I go to my website (www.website.com) it forwards to myname.dyndns.org.  The browser shows that this redirect is happening.

How can I set it up so the website is hosted on myname.dyndns.org but the clients browser doesn't display any forwarding?  i.e. just stays (www.website.com/default.aspx etc.).

Any help appreciated!

You can create a CNAME Record for your domain which points to myname.dyndns.org. In the DNS panel of your domain, make sure the @ record and the www records are both CNAME records to myname.dyndns.org instead of A records to an IP address.

Then, once you have a static IP address at your location, change these records back to A records and have them point to your public IP address.

Turns out I had to call hosting service directly.  Thanks for  your help, this is exactly what I asked for and they sorted!
