    What i want is to buy a new domain name like http://www.mysitename.com and forward it to the above affiliate link. Is this possible? And with forwarding will i get credited for the sales.
    Thank you.

    Theres many things you can do:

    IFrame - will pass referer
    Metarefresh - will pass as blank 98% of the time
    php header - simple works but will pass

    Just google any of those and you'll find your piece of code. It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

    Yes it is possible and yes, you will get credited for your sale. You'll probably be best off using Metarefresh redirecting to do it like Siek said.

    alright so on the domain that you purchase when someone enters that webpage... have this code for your index page (home page)

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://AFFLIATELINK.com"/>

    On your resource box you'll have it link to your domain. When clicked it will redirect to your affliate link

    I suggest getting a domain thats relevant, uploading adtrackz which I've posted here and creating a tracking link like yourrelevantdomain.com/nameofpage which will redirect to your aff link.

    This way you both mask and forward your aff link and get to track all the clicks from it so you know how its doing.

    Also you can generate a tracking pixel to give to your affiliate program so it will also track the conversions for you.

    well before you go to far...you may want to check out some simple HTML tutorials. They will come in real handy when you want to start doing more advanced things. Im not putting you down at all!! we all started somewhere. also you may look into getting Micro*s0ft frontpage or Expression Web. they will help you make your Index.html file and upload it to your domain.

    Sorry guys, but I respectfully think you all know too much :)

    fantum777, Let me ask you a question: Do you need to forward your domain in order to do some Black hat stuff ? From this: "i want to add the link in my resource box in article directories", I understand you probably don't.

    So, from one absolute non-techie to another, I'd just go to the panel from the company you bought your domain from, and simply look for the forwarding option. Include your affiliate URL in the box and that's it. I know it's pretty easy in godaddy, since I do it all the time and I don't know squat about technical stuff. It won't track your hits nor hide your referrer, but your link will look good :)

    While testing your index.html page, put the above code into the <head> section. If your url= link or meta syntax is not quite right,

    (1)you will get a tight, fast endless loop. To break out of it you may need to close your browser window. The content="0; is a timer in seconds. Use a value like 2 or 5 while developing to make it easier to break out if you need to. Change to "0" after everything works.

    OR else
    (2) your meta code will be ignored. Then the <body> section will execute. So put something simple there to display like <p>you ought not see this</p>

    I've tested all, it works, but for my affiliate promoting the linden method (http://www.linden-method.com) instead of my domain, my hop link always shows up in the browser location bar.

    Anyone can help please?

    Son, you are looking to mask the url. These are 3 solutions for you:

    1. With frames.
    2. With Apache rewrite.
    3. With page retrieval software.
