Off topic: bouncing a webpage address?

FireFire Posts: 17,398
Oh techies, lend me your ears. Here's a question, it might seem random:

how do I  get a webpage to appear under a different web address? I have a free Wordpress blog page. I want to keep the blog format I have but have it appear under a new web address (long story).  One can have a phone number forwarded through another phone number and a email account forwarded through another email account. I'm sure there must be a way to bounce a webpage in a similar way. 

 I've been grappling with this for ages. Thanks

Insights welcome.

    Some domain providers simply let you set as an option the URL redirect. The coding for it is relatively straightforward:

    Who have you bought the domain from? I can try to find it in their website settings for you. Again, most allow URL masking.

    @Astraeus I have messaged you. Many thanks
  • @Fire In case your friend has got a wordpress,com website (which is not the same as using a Wordpress software in his own domain, but belongs to the company, then he can redirect to his own domain in Settings- General  and click on "redirect" in "Site address". Then he enters his own website address (URL).
