DNS can only control what IP address the client connects to. It doesn't
have any effect on the "Host:" header that is sent in the HTTP request,
and that's what a webserver uses to identify the target site, in a
named-based virtual hosting context.
I think you want to use a proxy with URL-rewriting capability. SQUID
seems to be capable of this.
Possibly some browser add-on might have a URL-rewriting capability too,
haven't looked into that.
