    URL Masking?

    Hello! Newbie here. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction.

    I have three domain names, let's call them:
    Name1.org, Name2.org, and Name3.org

    When I type Name2.org in the address bar Name1.org/PageX is displayed.
    &
    When I type Name3.org in the address bar Name1.org/PageY is displayed.


    Is there any way I can mask the URL so when I type Name2.org the address bar correctly shows Name2.org (instead of showing Name1.org/PageX)?

    Same thing with Name3.org
    In the future I'd like people to be able to visit a specific page, for example, someone could type in
    www.Name3.org/Register to access specific content. Is this possible?

    I hope this makes sense...

    I'm using WordPress if that makes any difference!!

    Hmmm... Would an Add-on domain perhaps be the answer?

    To clarify:
    My main website is CMGWebServices.com and I've created GirlsRGems.org
    When I go to GirlsRGems.org the URL changes to CMGWebServices.com/GirlsRGems. I want the URL to say www.girlsrgems.org/whatever-page-I-am-on instead.

    Addons is how I do it - a lot depends on your hosting setup. I have several domains, all on one hosting account - with one main domain and the others as addon domains.
    Then I create an empty database for each domain, create a subfolder for each domain, and manually install WP for each domain ( I NEVER EVER use the one-click install).
    That way I have a WP site for each domain. If I want several of them to look alike, I use the same theme.

    For example - http://digitalinsite.ca and http://alphamare.ca same theme

    http://blackwatercosplay.com/ - different theme
