Not sure if this is right place for this but simply enough I want to hide the url or make it say something else due

to the fact it has nothing to do with the domain name.

Example my domain is www.animals.com

A new page would be www.animals.com\rockets

So if I have a page about rockets, I don't want users to know anything about www.animals.com or see that URL.

Possible?

Can't help you with the 'masking'. But I have to say, excellent choice on the example domain. :)

I will ask around and see if somebody can respond to your question.

I am not 100% sure I understand what you are asking.

A browser needs that hostname in order to access a page, so if the rockets folder/page was on that domain, it would be necessary to utilize it.

Right, I need to utilize that domain, but is there anyway to mask it or have it display something else when the rocket page is being viewed?

No. Your only option is to register a different domain that the page lives on.

An iframe will you to display content from another site on your site, without showing the contents URL. Unfortunately this wont help you as the url will still say animals.com
