Or your with your new address (like www.third-site.com) your visitors will automatically see content hosted on your primary site from a sub-directory (at www.your-site.com/third)

Some of the features included with this type of Domain Hosting include:

  • Redirection performed at the Web Server level
  • Supports both sub-domains and top-level domains
  • Does not involve any type of scripting or browser push
  • Fast, reliable and will work with any web browser

For example you can set your-name@second-site.com as a mail name for your-name@your-site.com and your email will automatically be delivered to you.Or you can even set up a full mailbox for other-name@third-site.com.
