I was wondering if forwarding like this was possible with any service like godaddy/dyndns/etc: ---> ---> --->

It would also be nice if the browser didn't show the ports, etc.

For the time being, browsers will always show the port if it's not 80 or 443. – EEAA Feb 13 '12 at 0:45

What you would need is not a DNS-based solution, but a Reverse Proxying solution.

Most of the predominant web server technologies on the market offer this functionality to some extent, like: Apache (with mod_proxy), IIS (with Application Request Routing) and nginx.

I don't have any experience with hosted reverse proxying, but I know that some hosting providers offer this capability.
