    I was wondering if this is possible. Having different Domain names point to different folders on 1 Hosting site?
    Example:
    Hosting is for www.affiliatenetworksite.com

    So the main domain name is pointing to the www.affiliatenetworksite.com/index.html

    But then have another domain name (Lets call it Domain#1).
    Domain#1 points to www.affiliatenetworksite.com/domain1/index.html

    Then Domain#2 points to www.affiliatenetworksite.com/domain2/index.html

    Then Domain#3 points to www.affiliatenetworksite.com/domain3/index.html

    And So On.
    So your Domain names would be like
    myvideos.com
    myelectronics.com
    mygames.com
    etc.
    I know you can use redirects, but they Still show the True Location. I would like to keep the True location hidden. Just show the Domain name itself and not the Hosting Name.

    It depends on your webhost.
    You'll have to call or email them and ask your question.
    Some webhosts will do that for you (for an extra fee, for each domain redirect).

    If the webhost won't specifically allow reference to a subdirectory, they for sure will
    allow redirect to the same root directory ... in that case, you'll use .htaccess to do the
    redirect to the subdirectories.

    In either case, the webhost needs to know the domain names and where they
    should be directed. Ask them about it and hopefully they can help you out.

    You can do that in Apache or IIS with vHosts (Virtual Hosts).

    In Apache, it's pretty simple - just edit your sites-available record and add a virtual record for each domain name. Just ensure that your "NameVirtualHost" is set.

    If you have cPanel, you can do this even more simply by using addon domains. They will be structured exactly how you're showing (as subdirectories of the main domain).
