Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hey Team,

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me how to cloak and redirect a name etc

Basically if i have a web address or url that i want to hide or should i say, dont want to advertise, Is there a way i can use another url which when clicked or typed into a browser redirects to the web address i want to hide?

Your help would be really appreciated

Warm Regards

Chunkynuts

Within the Control Panel of the domain name that you actually want to use, there will be an option to set domain forwarding> if you click to set the domain to forward, you will be presented with more options two of which will be to either a)Maintain forwarding domain name address in address bar or b)Not to maintain forwarding address in address bar.

Different providers phrase these options differently but the upshot is that you want to maintain the forwarding domain name's url in the address bar and the ability to do this is within your (forwarding) domain name's control panel.

You can use bit.ly | Basic | a simple URL shortener as well, which actually shortens the URL. You can customize the shortened URL, and you're also provided with stats for each URL you create. All of this is free.

There are also other methods to cloaking links, like using a simple PHP or HTML script to redirect a subdomain to point to any web page you want. This method doesn't provide any tracking, though. Another option is to buy professional software, which will provide tracking and stats on all links. You can even find Wordpress plug-ins that work well and provide an array of options.

All depends on what you want, and the ease of setting it up.

I like the old "Recommends" redirect to cloak my affiliate links.

Just put a folder called - recommends - inside your domain, then put a folder inside the recommends folder named for the domain/affiliate product/service you are trying to promote.

Your link would look something like this:

yourdomain.com/recommends/nameofproduct/

yourdomain.com/recommends/name-of-service/

yourdomain.com/recommends/name_of_website/

yourdomain.com/recommends/nameofClickbankproduct/

Inside the product folder, you will save an HTML file as index. See below for the actual code to use on your index file.

NOTE: the name of the folder you put inside your recommends folder where your HTML redirect index page is MUST NOT HAVE ANY SPACES IN IT. You may use _ or - between the words, otherwise it must look like one LARGE STRING OF LETTERS. Also, to ensure it works properly you should always close the link with a / as shown above.


Below is an easy to use redirect. Just open up any HTML editor and cut and paste the code below. Change out the highlighted areas with your own information, save as index.html and you can promote anything you want and have it appear to be from you and your website.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="XHTML namespace">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="1; URL=http://input domain name or affiliate product link here">
<title>Domain or Product/Service Goes Here</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Say you are attempting to sell a clickbank product. Below is what your redirect link would look like inside your HTML template.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh"
CONTENT="1; URL=http://14ca03j6022pdxdpdi185g-bya.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=ALLENLUNDY">
<title>Only 1 Dollar</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>


The link you would use to promote would look something like this:

Hope this helps.
