but I want to write <img src="website2.com/image.jpg">

greetings rgb192,  I do not get what you mean in your explanation  of your question?

if you have a jpg image  hosted on website.com, then the only way the browser knows to display that image is to use -
<img src="http://www.website.com/image.jpg">

for the web location where the image is at - www.website.com/image.jpg

if an Image is not on the  www.website2.com/image.jpg  server, then an address there will not show that image,
but maybe you mean something else ? ?  can you explain more of what you are trying for ?
and what you may mean by - "website2.com acts a pointer to website.com "

I am not in my computer so I cannot give you full explanation. But I guess that what you want to do is to show dom1.com's image while calling dom2's right? If so try configuring your .htaccess file.

Why do you want to do this?  Why not just use the actual URL of the image?  That is what most professional developers would do.  Just spell it out, starting with http.

Ok, why don't you set up an account in photobucket.com there you can host images and you can change them whenever you need to. You can also set up your own website to host your images.
Cheers!

If you are using IIS try this, http://www.iis.net/download/urlrewrite . In Apache you do have .htaccess I think it is called htaccess.txt
