Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following website up and running: www.posti.sh The website is actually on www.myskoob.com/postish/, but I use domain forwarding so that when the user types in www.posti.sh it stays that way and does not change to www.myskoob.com/postish/. You can try out the website. It is generally about posting something and uses jQuery ajax to let the user perform posting.

Here's the problem:

While visiting www.myskoob.com/postish/, that works fine - all ajax calls seem to work. However, when I go to www.posti.sh, it does not work - I cannot understand why.

There are two ways of forwarding - one is frame forwarding (which then works) and the other is URL-hiding, which is a much cleaner way because that way the URL actually changes with different pages that are opened.

Anybody knows a reason why URL-hiding does not work? Thank you!

Dennis

How exactly does 'url-hiding' work? As discussed when you raised a similar question a few days ago, the best solution is to map the domain properly - then none of this would be an issue. –  toomanyairmiles May 22 '12 at 14:40
    
@toomanyairmiles Thank you! What exactly does proper mapping mean? –  Charles May 22 '12 at 15:09
    
@toomanyairmiles URL-hiding means that when you type in posti.sh it redirects you to myskoob.com/postish/, but the url won't change. Please note that this is not the same issue like a few days ago. –  Charles May 22 '12 at 15:10
    
Do you own myskoob? –  toomanyairmiles May 22 '12 at 15:28
    
No, they are friends, but I do have access to server configuration. –  Charles May 22 '12 at 15:31

I think you've asked a few questions about this both here and over at StackOverflow.

The simple truth is that hosting on a sub-directory of a friend's site, and framed forwarding isn't helping your user experience, SEO, or your users share individual links to your site content.

All up this is hurting your ability to promote the site and gain a following.

So, while I appreciate it's not a direct answer to your question I would recommend that you buy a hosting account and host the site properly under www.posti.sh.
