Hi, can some one help me with 2 issues.

1. i'm going to use forwarding and would like the host url to remain uncovered. Can i do this simply in dreamweaver? Eg. www.a.com (http://www.a.com) is forwarded to www.b.com (http://www.b.com) but www.b.com (http://www.b.com) is never visable.

2. i'm sure this might be simpler. I don't want the links on the pages to reveal the "b.com" host either. Is there a way to stop link destination being revealed by the browser when hovered/ clicked?

Thanks for your help.

Contact yout host and they should be able to help you out.

2. i'm sure this might be simpler. I don't want the links on the pages to reveal the "b.com" host either. Is there a way to stop link destination being revealed by the browser when hovered/ clicked? Make all your links a.com, or make them all relative as in <a href="page.html">Link</a>

Welcome to the forums btw!

Thanks Robsta - Im not sure. On the Site Documents page under Document URL: I entered "privacy.html" Im assuming this works like other programs for naming URLs such as wordpress.

to achieve this you're gonna need something called a mod_rewrite or a .htaccess, if you haven't come accross it before. Google it. tutorial's a bit long for now i can't post it but when i come back n you haven't found a solution i'll post it for you.
