    I want to create a page on my website (http://globalivity.com) that has a url that is completely unique to itself (i.e.: not globalivity.com/PAGE but PAGE.com)
    I already own the url I plan on using but can not figure out how to set it up.
    Any help would be amazing! Thanks!

    I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to accomplish.

    If you want people who visit PAGE.com to be redirected to a page you created on globalivity.com, you'd need to setup a redirection on PAGE.com either in the .htaccess or through your host.

    If you're trying to have a menu link on your globalivity.com page that links to PAGE.com then you'd setup a menu link via Appearance-->Menus under the Links section. In this case the content would be hosted at PAGE.com.

    If you need the content hosted on globalivity.com, you'd want to do the first option. You could also have the domain masked so that even though it forwards to globalivity.com/PAGE the url still shows PAGE.com. You'll need to check with your host on how to do that.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you Natalie, and sorry that I wasn't more clear originally, but the last one you described sounded most like what I'm trying to accomplish (i.e.: making a page on WordPress (like globalivity.com/PAGE) but having the URL show as PAGE.com).

    Does anyone have any tips on how I would go about hiving my domain 'masked' like that?

    Thanks again!!

    It depends on your host for PAGE.com. Here's GoDaddy's info for reference.

    I would think any host would have similar instructions if you search their help.

    I want to create a page on my website...

    You can do this within WordPress. The heavyweight way is to convert your WordPress installation to multisite (sometimes weirdly known as a "network"). You get a whole new website for the second domain, even though you still have just one WordPress installation.

    For just one page, a plugin could provide a lightweight solution, but I don't know whether any published plugin does it.

    The only domain masking I've seen is purely cosmetic. Users can easily establish that the page they are looking at is really from a different domain.
