How to hide parent domain and only show subdomain in url (2 posts)

    Thank you for taking the time to help me with this.

    I'm even willing to send whoever gives me the first correct answer money via paypal to show my gratitude if its allowed. I'm very new to creating websites and working with wordpress. But I have an issue that is really stressing me out...

    I have a website, "website.com". This was my original website I signed up with my hosting with. I purchased another website thru namecheap, "supernice.com" and have it forwarded to my domain at "supernice.website.com" The problem arises when I go to supernice.com, my url shows it as "supernice.website.com". I don't want it to show it as a subdomain. Especially when they have absolutely nothing to do with each other at all. How can I have just my subdomain show up as "supernice.com" in the browser without forwarding it in a frame. (I want to keep it SEO friendsly) There has to be a way I can display this. I've looked everywhere to no avail, and my website is just lying in wait until I can figure this out. Any detailed instructions will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi There,
    I came across your query while looking for another issue. The problem you have is having it redirect. In your hosting "supernice.com" should be setup as an addon domain in cpanel, NOT a subdomain, with no redirect. It will then appear as its own url http://www.supernice.com

    Cheers, Keith
