The only parts of those URLs that DNS controls are the domain names,
i.e. www.hysl.org and www.geocities.com. In DNS, you could set up
www.hysl.org as an alias for www.geocities.com. Everything else would be
a matter of webserver configuration, including the part of the webserver
config that enables the www.geocities.com webserver to recognize
www.hysl.org as a name for itself, and differentiate the requests for
that domain enough, at least, to give it a customized home page.
