I may have answered my own question. This approach seems to work, although, there may be a better alternative.

Set up the following DNS entry at     IN      CNAME       @

And then create / modify .htaccess as follows:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine on
    Options FollowSymLinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ redirectToGoogle.html [L]

And then create redirectToGoogle.html and forward to the desired site

        <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=">
