URL Cloaking

URL Cloaking is a web site which appears to be one web address, but actually contains a single frame which is another address completely.

The Domain Parking feature of many hosting providers offers this type of functionality for free.

To implement URL Cloaking a web page contains the following HTML:

 <html><head><title>My web site</title></head>
  <frameset border=0 rows="100%,*" frameborder="no" marginleft="0"
    margintop="0" marginright="0" marginbottom="0">
    <frame src="http://actual-web-site.com/" scrolling=auto frameborder="no"
        border="0" noresize="noresize">
    <frame topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0"
        frameborder="no" border="0" noresize="noresize">
  </frameset>
  </html>

If hosted on cloaked-site.com, it serves actual-web-site.com while cloaked-site.com appears in the web address bar.
