Hi everyone,

The question is, what is the best way to hide url
Ex: 'www.mysite.com/default.asp?a=XX&id=1' so that all the visitor sees is www.mysite.com/shop in the URL bar? .

I develop web by ASP.

It's urgent. Please help me

Consider this link:

http://www.computing.net/webdevel/wwwboard/forum/1684.html

It is done using frames

Here is another example with launching a new window:

I think it can also be done on hosting account but you would need to ask your hosting provider

Cheers!

With ASP.NET, you have URLRewriter techniques.

Place this code into the 'shop' folder and name it index.htm

When people type www.mysite.com/shop they will open the page in a hidden frameset.

<head><title>Website Title</title></head>

<frameset rows='100%, *' frameborder="0" framespacing="0" border="0">

<frame src="http://www.mysite.com/default.asp?a=XX&id=1" name=mainwindow frameborder=no framespacing=0 marginheight=0 marginwidth=0></frame>

</frameset>

<noframes>

<h2>Your browser does not support frames.  We recommend upgrading your
browser.</h2><br><br>
<center>Click <a href="http://www.mysite.com/default.asp?a=XX&id=1">here</a> to enter the site.</center>

</noframes></html>

The only other way I can think of is hidden form fields for your values--instead of query strings.

I think esdxr26 got it right with the solution. This method, also called "URL cloaking", is widely known and documented on Google. Also check http://www.google.it/search?q=url+cloak
