Make a website name disappear with domain masking

Domain masking lets you protect the address of a particular site, while still allowing customers to access the content. Here's how it works:

First, you register a domain name, say, domain1.com. This is only an address, though; domain1.com is not going to have its own web site. You use this address to display the content of another web site, say, forwarded-to.com.

So your visitors type in www.domain1.com and see the display from the forwarded-to.com web site. But they do not see the forwarded-to.com address.

Domain Masking lets you protect the address of a particular site, while still allowing customers to access the content.

When you just use forwarding, the forwarding address will not appear in the browser's address field after the forwarding is completed. When you add masking, the forwarding address will always stay in the browser's address field and hide the real destination's address.

In addition to the URL, the Mask Meta Tags feature allows you to enter a title, plus description and keywords Meta tag information for the masked domain. Title and Meta tag information is important to a Web site's search engine ranking, but does not influence how a Web site is being displayed.
