How can I hide a folder in the url address RRS feed

    Dear all

    We currently have a website hosted on IIS 10 which has the url as https://domain.com/main-page. I've used the HTTP Redirect module so that the user does not need to type in the full url but only needs to type in domain.com. However once they've done that they are still able to see the full url once they're in the main landing page. How can I prevent this from happening?  

    TIA

    Hi pmc1964,

    However once they've done that they are still able to see the full url once they're in the main landing page. How can I prevent this from happening?  

    Do mean you have hidden the subdirectory "main-page", but after logging the main login page, the complete url is displayed again? if so, you can try the following methods:

    1. Launch your Web browser. Sign in to your web host’s online account management utility or control panel.
    2. Go to the domain management option in the main navigation menu. This is typically named “Domain Manager” or “Domain Settings.”
    3. Select the main website domain to forward to the subdomain.
    4. Click “Forward” followed by “Forward Domain.” Select “HTTP” from the options list for non-secure websites. Alternatively, select “HTTPS” for secure sites.
    5. Type the full URL of the subdomain into the “Forward To” input field. For example, "https://domain.com/main-page".
    6. Click and select the “Update My DNS Setting to Support This Change” option or the “Automatically Update DNS Settings” option. This action forwards the main domain to the domain hosted on the subfolder.
    7. Click “Advanced Options” and then select “Forward With Masking.” Type a website title, description and keywords into the applicable input fields. This is the information search engines use to index the site. The title also displays in the status bar on viewers’ Web browsers. Click the “OK” button to save and implement the changes.

    Best regards,

    Sam
