Domain name masking displays the content of a website other than that of the URL. For instance, when your visitors type in www.yourwebsite.com, they will be shown content from www.anotherwebsite.com.
There are a few ways you can achieve domain name making, including through virtual hosting and inline frames. However, the simplest domain name masking method is to rewrite the URL using your .htaccess file.
Step 1. Open the .htaccess File
Once you’re in the web hosting control panel, look for your “File Manager” and use it to navigate to the “public_html” directory. Click (or right-click) on the file and select the “Edit” option.
Step 2. Add Rewrite Code
Add the following code:
- RewriteEngine On
- RewriteRule “^currentfolder/?$ /newfolder
Replace “currentfolder” with the directory the content is currently in and “newfolder: with the folder of the new content you wish to present when the URL is loaded.
When done, remember to save the file.
