Static Route using URL on Cisco ASA

Last Modified: 2016-02-29
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
