We have a site www.x.com, which has products pages for resellers, so reseller A might have the following pages at our site, while his original site is www.A.com
www.x.com/1 and www.x.com/2
and reseller B might have the following pages at our site, while his original site is www.B.com
www.x.com/3 and www.x.com/4

each of those pages can move to a payment page, so:
www.x.com/1 moves to www.x.com/pay?x=1
and www.x.com/2 moves to www.x.com/pay?x=2 and so on.

Now, our resellers requesting to hide our link from product pages and show their links instead, so when going to www.x.com/1 it should render the page and the URL in the address bar should be www.A.com/1, as for www.x.com/3 it should render and the URL be www.B.com/3 since it is for a different reseller.

thats ok with us (if we can do it :) ), but the payment page should stay the same, it should tell users that payment is safe and through our web site, specially that we are using HTTPS which is not guaranteed to be at the reseller site.

I tried frames (since i didnt find anything else) but it didnt work for the following reasons:
1- for medium security settings, it is preventing some css files and js files from loading from our site, and gives access denied javascript errors sometimes
2- the pay page is at the same link as the reseller, meaning that the submit only affected the frame the button was in.

any advices? (BTW: asp.net is used)

(i would love to get rid of frames, am i missing something?)
P.S. notice that those resellers registers dynamically at our site.

<frame src="http://www.x.com/1">
Sorry, your browser does not handle frames!
Please go to [x.com...]

Why don't you send 301 redirects for search engines not to look spammy? That's pretty much what they recommend in similar situations.

It might be a bit of work but give a try with CNAME records in your DNS. If you have a vds or dedicated box, you can always automate the process
