    Hi all,

    Im a beginner, please bear with me:)

    I just started with getting my feet into building niche sites.... I have unlimited space available on my bluehost account.... now I want to create some german niche sites with a .de domain but I can´t buy them via bluehost. I need to buy them seperate and forward the URL then to my Bluehost folder....

    This is what I´m worried about regarding the SEO optimized links, they should be like domain.com/how-to-blabla-test/
    So but in this case I need to forward my germandomain.de to bluehostdomain.com/websitefolder/ right? and I do this normally via iframe, so the german domain name stays all the time in the browserline.

    Can someone advise on this issue? or would it be better to disable iFrame forwarding so when I type in the germandomain.de it will change in the browserline to bluehostdomain.com/websitefolder/

    Would be curiois about what you guys think!

    You don't have to forward the .de domain to your bluehost folder. You can simply add your new .de domain on your bluehost account as an "add-on domain" and set the nameservers on your domain registrar with your bluehost account's nameservers.

    This is not necessary when you add your .de domain on your bluehost account. You can create pages like germandomain.de/websitefolder/yourpage.php/html without any redirect.

    If you want to go on this route, you can still set your germandomain.de/websitefolder to show in the address bar by using the "Forward Domain" feature which is basically called domain masking.

    It looks like you're overcomplicating basic stuffs. I'm not sure if you can send PM but you can add me on skype at FBGuru. I'll help you out.
