URL Masking with .htaccess

In case you would like to access a certain URL for your domain name but do not display it in the web browser address bar - here is how you can accomplish it using an .htaccess file.

A sample rewrite rule will look like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^something/?$ /something/else/

This way each time someone accesses:

http://yourdomain.com/something

the actual content that will be displayed will be for:

http://yourdomain.com/something/else

while the URL will remain unchanged.
