Hiding URL Parameters

Hello Experts,

How do I Hide URL Parameters without reloading page in Javascript. For example if URL after load is showing "http://something.com/userid=1001" then after page is loaded i want to show the url to user as "http://something.com/userid=***".
             There is no need of any other security to be implemented, only thing is required to change the text only.

Any help on this will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

When parameters are passing in HTTP GET, it is visible for the user in the URL. When passing variables in HTTP POST, it will not visible to the user in the URL

As you want http://something.com/userid=*** it is better to secret your userid like I am showing here php example.
here userid=1111;
<?php
$url=http://something.com/userid=md5(1111);
?>

Open in new window


When you will check userid:

<?php
$userid=$_GET['userid'];
//Fetch record from db here I assume that userid contain in userid column and you fetch data in $row variable
//Now check 
$userid=md5($row['userid'];
?>

Open in new window

Currently I cannot change the structure to "HTTP GET" or "HTTP  POST" and I am using JAVA , not PHP.

Please suggest if there is any way to do it on JAVA script (Client Side only).
