Static Route using URL on Cisco ASA

I need to configure a static route that sends all traffic to Amazon's Aspera services over a secondary circuit; however they don't have a public IP available → i can't configure a standard static route.  I've tried a few addresses in the static route (IP of Amazon upload portal), and nothing is working.

They have a https portal that serves as the gateway to upload traffic.  Is there a method to configure a wildcard hostname that would permit similar static routing on my ASA?  I'm vaguely familiar with policy-based routing (PBR), but I don't think it's available in 7.1.  I'm more than willing to upgrade firmware if that is the best option.

Model: Cisco ASA 5520, SSM-10
ASA Version: 9.0(2)
ASDM Version: 7.1(3)
Firewall Mode: Routed
LVL 1

not sure what kind private IP you are talking about but i reckon you shouldn't worry about it if the IP address is addressable (e.g. PINGable) from your side.

some ISPs and hosting providers do use heaps of private IPs for internal or customer hosts so it is quite common if you trace route to a host on the Internet and observe several hops in the middle actually are using private IPs.

if the remote host is not addressable, probably the only approach is to ask them do port forwarding against your IP, port and protocol.

ASA doesn't do PBR in any version.

A proxy would probably be the best option.
