Static IP Static Route

Thanks in advance for any ideas and help.

I am seeking a solution to a client’s request.   He has internet users all over the world and wants them to logon into his website as soon as they go onto the internet.  He wants to enforce this and have it set so third party software can’t change the homepage etc.  
Is it possible to create a static IP for each user using a service such as dyn.com and then set a next hope routing table to the website hosted by you where they login and then they can continue around the internet to do their work.  He would like to log the log in/out times and sites they are going to.    They will be using PC’s, iPhone’s, iPads, mac’s and androids.
How many users could I have logged into the site before it really slowed them down?
Could you please tell me if this is possible and the level of difficulty to install the various routing tables remotely.  Dyn.com is great for creating static IP’s.   Is there any third party software that can help?  Is this a crazy idea or does anyone have another solution?

absolutely crazy idea. if you were to set this on my pc or phone there would be no way me not to change it. i think that you need to rely on the users to be lazy and set them the desired page as homepage.
you can not force a static route if you do not have a connection established and absolutely no way to do it on multiple platforms including phones. you would need to run some set of scripts everytime the device connects to internet which is very unreasonable.

what does the client want to acomplish by this?

I would agree with theruck.  Its not a practical idea to do this.

If you wanted control over what the user does and what the user sees etc then you may want to look at a terminal server/remote desktop server.  

You maybe able to configure thin clients so that they can only RDP onto the terminal server.  You will then have more control over what the user does and sees.  This obviously wont help mobile devices etc.

I cant think of a way that you would be able to do what you are trying to do.  You wouldnt be able to rely on dynamic DNS - Also, this doesn't issue an IP address, all it does is update the DyDNS A-Record.
