Hello

I am trying to find out how to mask the address in the address bar, such that if my website was www.me.com, i want to maintain that, and mask the actual www.me.com/index.html or even www.you.com where it is being hosted.

I've searched on here trying to think what you would call that and I'm struggling a bit!

Thanks to all in advance

Cheers

Ben

Why would you want to do that?

Why would you want to do that?

So that the user wouldn't know that they had been forwarded to a different domain

The user can still find out, and I'm not sure why you'd want to prevent them from knowing that, unless you're up to something dodgy.

If you are willing not to resize or move the browser, black tape could mask the address bar.

The question is still: why would you do it, because anyone can see in the coding that you are forwarding.
But if you insist: frames:
