Aha! This looks like what I need.  I'll study everything I can about
mod_rewrite.  Thanks so much for your help!

If you are using apache. Using mod_rewrite is a very easy way to fix the
doorway problem. For example:

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:80>
   ServerName www.companyA.com
   RewriteEngine  on
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
   RewriteRule    .+  /companyA_index.html [L,R=302]
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:80>
   ServerName www.companyB.com
   RewriteEngine  on
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
   RewriteRule    .+  /companyB_index.html [L,R=302]
</VirtualHost>

Otherwise - use a ServletFilter to trap the incoming requests and
redirect/forward to the alternate pages as needed.
