Need help with domain masking/cloaking
I'm building a website for www.theschool.com with wordpress for a school (totally voluntarily, with no profit) with but their server doesn't support the wordpress requirements. And I have access to the ftp, but no way of hosting the domain somewhere else since I won't have access to change the nameservers due to some buerocracy.

So here is my problem:

There's the domain www.theschool.com with a crappy hosting that has old php, no sql etc.

I've set up the website on www.mydomain.com on Dreamhost shared hosting plan.

Now what I need is:

- How can I make people who visit theschool.com to see the content in mydomain.com, but see the url as theschool.com ?

- How can I make people that google theschool and end up at mydomain.com but see the url as theschool.com ?

I'd appreciate any help on this issue.

Notes:
I've already tried iframe but the double scrolling bar on long pages doesn't look any good, besides people end up at mydomain.com on google searches.
I've tried making an .htaccess on mydomain.com but it is somehow problematic.

RE: Need help with domain masking/cloaking
if you cannot edit the dns of the other domain name what you want is not possible. you can redirect requests from theschool.com to mydomain.com but the url people see will be mydomain.com which you say is not preferable. does that matter though? a lot of places have one url for aesthetic reasons that forward to some other domain.

...and you could use a 301 redirect header in an index.php file if you don't have .htaccess rights.
