What do you mean? Do you mean that when you go to say "www.example1.com" it forwards you to "www.example2.com"?

I meant like example

"http://domain.com/lol/ comes from http://lol.com/"

Something like that

Here is the code you would put int he HTML page:

<html> <head> <title>Your Page Title</title> <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.the-domain-you-want-to-redirect-to.com"></HEAD> <BODY> Optional page text here. </BODY> </HTML>

I found this code here: http://www.instant-web-site-tools.com/html-redirect.html

I'm not really sure what you are asking.

What I meant isnt redirection, what I meant is a website made smaller into just a sub-domain of a website.

It depends on your webhost. For me, I've been able to have http://www.mydomain.com/something.com/ as something.com, if you're using CPanel then you can buy a domain through Godaddy (or another registrar), set the DNS for your webhost and create an addon domain.

You'll need to tell the registrar of lol.com the DNS addresses of the hosting server of domain.com first (e.g. dns.hostingcompany.com) , then set a domain pointer in the admin panel of domain.com that tells it to point lol.com to domain.com/lol/

Be aware though, that the domain pointer feature is sometimes restricted to what hosting package you may have bought. If your hosting supports "multiple websites" then you can do it.

I'm unsure how you can do this. But in iWeb you can create different websites and publish then to the same site under different sub domains.

For example if I have example.wordpress.com you want the site's url to be example.com right?

To do what you're asking you're going to need to own that second domain name.

In your example it was

"http://domain.com/lol/ comes from http://lol.com/"

It would be easier if you just created a subdirectory like lol.domain.com verses a folder of domain.com/lol but either way is possible, you'll just need the second domain first.
