web address cloaking

I have a quick question for you all...
Right now I have one IP and 3 domains pointing to it... I have a little perl script that redirects people to appropriate pages (read: domains). My problem is on the top it shows [domain.com...]
www.domain.com being my main domain/ip and blah.com is the directory i've setup for the other domain here called blah.com

Can I use cloaking to just show [blah.com...] in the address bar?

Thanx a lot for any help!

Hello panx and welcome.

Cloaking won't really help in allowing you to do that, you can direct hits to another domain, or show the same URL for a number of pages, but not show a non existant URL.

I have seen some java scipts that claim they could do it, but the ones I tried just changed the URL at the bottom of the browser not in the URL address bar. I'll root around a bit and see if I can find some (wasen't able to at quick glance).

Maybe you might want to try a hidden frame?
