    http://www.mycompany.com/mynewapp/login.aspx to some like this http://Alias/mynewapp/login.aspx, so we don not want to show the domain name, is this possible?

    You would need then to buy the "alias" domain name.

    Hi alfredo2002,

    As PatriceSc says you should buy the Alias domain.

    In my opinion, you should understand why we need to buy a domain.

    A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of number. However, it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses. 

    Actuallly, you don't actually buy the domain name, you rent it from your registrar. The price you pay them is for the service of routing the domain name to an actual server. Without that service a domain name would lead nowhere, they have to point visitors to the right server. They need servers to do that, which you pay for.

    So you should buy a domain which will redirect from http://Alias/mynewapp/login.aspx to your ipaddress

    Best Regards,
