    Wink Cloaking/masking script needed

    I have several domains all pointing to the same IP address and need to find a script that will allow me to display the "original" or "calling" domain name in the address bar.

    The "actual" address is www.clampett.co.uk, but if a user uses clampit.net or clampette.net, etc then that should be displayed in the address bar and not clampett.co.uk

    I understand this is referred to as url masking or cloaking.......

    Hi there.

    one option is to use an 'invisioble frame'. You use frame value of (0, 100%) and that will keep your url the same no matter what. that is basically url cloaking.

    Thank you for replying, unfortunately this doesn't really help as it doesn't appear to cope with anything other than the entry page.

    e.g. http://www.clampett.co.uk/album/ works, but http://www.clampett.net/album/ does not.

    Any other ideas?

    Ahha. Then you are looking at a much deeper problem.

    I do not know how much you know about DNS and ip mapping, but it is possible to have multiple domain names sharing the same 'disk space' as it were, for example (also a brilliant example of useabilty and user-thought)

    http://ww.google.com/

    gets you to the same place as http://www.google.com

    you may want to speak to your host about if you can do this. At the moment, it is probably just a redirect.

    Thank you. Unfortunately my host is currently only able to provide a redirect or form based solution on my current server.

    I can go to a Windows server which offers "full" cloaking (is that the right term?), but then I lose other options.

    It seems when choosing a server you can't have everything!
