In the Travefy platform, you have the option to turn on the Domain Masking function for your account. To learn a little more about what Domain Masking is and where to find it in your account keep on reading this article!
What is Domain Masking?
Domain name masking allows you to show one URL in the browser’s address bar, while another website’s content is actually loaded.
For example, when somebody opens your website, you can have yourdomainname.com shown in the browser’s address bar while the actual site loaded will be yourOTHERdomainname.com.
Masking does not affect the content of the actual website; it only covers up the original URL/domain name.
This feature allows for you to share information from Travefy with your client but the URL address will reflect your web address so that it looks like it is all coming from the same source.
