Which Record did you use to point to the IP? – DaGardner Jun 8 '13 at 16:27
I just checked that. It's Web Redirect, it doesn't let me to use "A" record because of "/script" part of my address. – Thomas Jun 8 '13 at 16:46
You have to use an "A" record and then create a virtual-host on your VPS – DaGardner Jun 8 '13 at 18:59
Yeah, But how? I have for example 5 directories and I can't just copy /script to the main directory. How to point /scirpt1 /scirpt2 and... to specific domains? – Thomas Jun 8 '13 at 20:20

Since you're using a web-redirect, the browser is obliged to tell the user what's going on. Redirects are &mbash; by nature — an interruption in the flow of web-surfing. DNS, on the other hand, is a little more trusted: it's considered just another way to refer to the same thing.

Assuming that you do not control server, there is no perfect solution — unless it's a service that specifically allows for you to use your own domain name. However, you could try embedding your website in an iframe, rather than redirecting:

<iframe width="100%" height=1"00%" src="">

This will break bookmarks, and impede url-based navigation.

If you do control the host, there is a way to do it, but I'm not sure how it works. – jpaugh Jun 8 '13 at 17:49
Yeah, I have the VPS. Isn't there any .htaccess solution? – Thomas Jun 8 '13 at 20:21
No good one at least. – DaGardner Jun 8 '13 at 21:44
