some routers have linux installed so it's possible
Proper way is to place DNS server with redirects in config but it's impossible now because many isp's/software will not bother to check unofficial DNS servers.
other way around is to use OpenDNS/NoIp portforward site2.com -> router_ip:someport->port_forward to local ip/port this is possible but im unsure if this will affect address bar.

"DNS server with redirects in config"? if that means running your won DNS server, then I think that's really not desirable. There's a limit as to how far up the tree you should try to get, and "dynamic" ip's generally stay static for months at a time. DDNS services provide low ttl's which are largely adhered to by other DNS servers, so dynamic dns is fine.

Not fair fhleung! Changing the original post so some of the thread no longer scans properly. i.e. posts 2 to 6 are now prior to your edited 1st post!

Meanwhile...
