Question about domain forwarding/masking

I recently registered a domain at godaddy.com. I set up the forwarding so that when my domain name is entered at a browser, my porfolio page at sonic.net comes up. So when you type http://www.joycewermont.com in the address bar, it loads my web developer portfolio from sonic.net. (actually located here:http://home.sonic.net/~jwermont/portfolio/...ev/samples.html ). But when you look at the address bar, it says www.joycewermont.com. Hooray! The forwarding and masking works great - so far.However, if you click on one of the links in the portfolio section, the correct page will come up, but it still says www.joycewermont.com in the address bar. That seems totally wrong to me. It should not show my domain name in the address bar when the browser is pointing to a page that isn't even on my site.Example:From the web developer portfolio page at http://www.joycewermont.com, you can go to a number of sites I've developed. The third one, "Kensington Research Group"(which is located here: http://www.kensingtonresearch.net/ ), will bring up that page, but if you click to it from my portfolio page, it will still show my domain name in the address bar. If you then click on "Our History of Success" from the Kensington Research page navigation bar (on the left), you will find lots of links, and you can click away forever, and the address bar will still say www.joycewermont.com.When I asked tech support at godaddy about this, they said, "That's the way our masking works. If you want it to behave differently, you'll have to code your HTML differently."Is this correct? And if it is correct, does anyone know what I need to do to put the right URLs in the address bar?Thanks,Joyce Wermont

I've wondered about that, too! domain "gripping", huh? I'll check that out. I hate the forward-frames method
