I have my main domain domain.co.nz with a static homepage of home but I also have a url that is great for SEO purposes and what I am trying to do is work out how I can have my seoDomain.co.nz point to a specific static page with the related information but the rest of the site remains domain.co.nz

What you are trying to do will lead to duplicate content being served under both domain.co.nz and seodomain.co.nz. So it's a bad idea. Instead you should make unique sites on both domains. – Abdussamad Oct 6 '12 at 23:18

Yes you can ... however this question is best suited for other SE forums as it doesn't relate to WordPress

In answer to your question, you login to you Domain Register and then you need to look for an option to configure Domain Forwarding to point all requests for seodomain.co.nz to domain.co.nz/somepage ...

Domain forwarding uses iframes so it doesn't help in this situation. seodomain.co.nz will not have any content except an iframe that has a domain.co.nz page. This will provide zero benefit SEO wise. – Abdussamad Oct 6 '12 at 23:18
There is a different version of domain forwarding for th URL, without iframe. Otherwise go lookup .htaccess and rewrite rules. – Damien Oct 6 '12 at 23:27
Domain forwarding without iframe is basically a 301 or 302 redirect. In that case all link juice flows to the target domain domain.co.nz. No benefit to seodomain.co.nz at all. – Abdussamad Oct 13 '12 at 14:19
