ftp dyndns 1and1 redirect

At this time I cannot move my domain name from 1and1. I have setup a DYNDNS free account and can get to my ftp server (at my house) using the DYNDNS host name. All that works fine. I would like to redirect users from the 1and1 web page (it has an ftp link) to point to DYNDNS host name for ftp (and hopfully hide the DYNDNS host name) Any suggestion? I know I could use the DYNDNS host name assigned to me as the web link at 1and1, but I do not want users to get use to that name. I plan on moving that domain in a few months.

you can lie using your /etc/hosts and/or by configuring a local DNS
so, resolving nama will be done locally
