Yes, it's called cloaking. It basically works by creating a frame that occupies the entire browser window, then loads the target page in the frame.


<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0" frameborder="0">
<frame name="__main" src="" noresize frameborder="0">

If you're responsible for both Web sites, you could put SQUID in front of them and handle it on the backend. (See: transparent proxy)

If you use zoneedit ( for the DNS management of your domain, you could achieve this easily at the DNS level. Thousands including myself use zoneedit for many years. It's free. Let's say you have a domain registered through godaddy. In your godaddy dns management: 1. Use Zone Edit's DNS server name instead of the DNS server of your hosting company. 2. Then in Zoneedit add that domain and add the hosting provider's IP address A Record 3. Then click on web forward and add your subdomain. It should update this within a few minutes. Here is an example screen capture:

Hope this helps.
