    I was wondering if anyone knew of a site that I could transfer my domain name to and it would allow me to create subdomain's and mask them and forward them.

    Like i have mydomain.com thats forwarding to myotherdomain.com
    It's masked so they always see mydomain.com

    I am looking to do that with subdomains.... like this and most importantly needs to be masked....

    something.mydomain.com forwarded and masked to myotherdomain.com/something

    . I have found this feature on some sites but you have to have webhosting with them, which I don't want. I just want a domain name service that allows me to create subdomains that forwards and masks to a specified file on another page

    or if this was possible

    mydomain.com/something masked and forwarded to myotherdomain.com/something

    I don't need webhosting, cuz I already have it. Just need the domain name forwarding features

    Thanks in advance

    Just go to zoneedit.com, change out your nameservers, add the subdomain, forward it to the domain.com/folder and click the cloak button. It won't cost you anything and it will give you the results you are looking for.

    that site was a little hard for me to navigate/understand. but I am a complete newbie when it comes to nameservers, forwarding and stuff.

    So, I made a zone for the domain to get my name servers. I changed my name servers on the place that i bought my url from. I then added domains and clicked cloak.

    It didn't work :(

    Says I may have to wait for an hour though if the ISP records the ip of name server or something. Also it asks me to buy a 3rd back up name server cuz the first 2 may not work sometimes, like as a "just in case".

    Is there a way I can test a server?

    Or is there any other service like this one, just a bit more user friendly, that anyone knows of that can create subdomains and forward and mask them?

    I will check to see if its working in an hour, cuz I am running to the store, but I just don't really want to have to buy another name server. If I have to i will, but I want to make sure everything is cloaked and forwarded as it should be first....
