How to redirect (from index.html page) but does not show url of the new page
For example, type in the domain (e.g. http://testwebpage.com)  this takes  me to my index page, which I want to redirect somewhere else.  However I don't want to see the new url on the browser.
My code so far:

<script language="JavaScript">
function redirectToNewPage(){
  location.href="/dir1/newpage.html";
}
</script>

</HEAD>
<BODY bgcolor="black" text=white onLoad="redirectToNewPage()">
</BODY>
</HTML>

You can empty the current dom and insert an iframe with src="theotherpage".
Why do you need to hide an url?

This is you index.php :


<?PHP
   $content = file_get_contents("/dir1/newpage.html");
   echo $content;
?>

Open in new window

No need to use JavaScript . Try
<html>
<head>

</head>
<body>
<object type="text/html" height="100%" width="100%"
data="http://www.experts-exchange.com/">
</object>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


or
<html>
 <head>
 <title>OBJECT</title>
 <frameset cols = "100%">
 <frame src="http://www.experts-exchange.com" />
 </frameset>
 </head>
 <body>
 </body>
 </html>

Open in new window

It turns out the an iframe is the best solution.  The url never divulge any path below  it.
