    What is URL Masking?

    Hey..
    Guys As far as i know URL Masking means that the visitors to the domain name will be forwarded to your target website, however the URL in their browser address bar will stay the same. Also known as Stealth Redirection or URL Hiding, this will ensure that your company sees the unique domain name and not the target URL

    URL Masking is the process of hiding the actual domain name of a website from the URL field of the user's browser in favor of another.

    Omilma,

    You got it right and this is particularly best for redirecting to vendor sites and so on for affiliate purposes.

    Informative post. In simple words URL Masking means hiding the original URL(domain).

    Mask or hides URL or domain name can be helpful in many cases; mask affiliate links, track the clicks and conversions, hide your long domain and track the clicks.

    Also called a link cloaker. You can also use a free service like bit.ly or tiny url to cloak links. If running wordpress, I found using a free plugin called Thirsty Affiliates works well on link cloaking.

    In short wording we can say "It means that the visitors to the sector address will be sent to your location website, however the URL in their web browser address bar will stay the same".

    There are quite a few ways to mask a URL like Iframe or /pagename.php.
