How to configure URL Frame in cPanel

URL Frame is an alternative to cPanel’s URL Redirect feature. It allows you to fetch and display content from another URL in a frame when a user visits a designated URL. Unlike URL Redirection, the browser’s address bar will continue to show your domain name.

To configure URL Frame in cPanel, you’ll need to edit the HTML file the user will visit manually.

1) First, log in to your HostPapa Dashboard

5) Enter the following code into the page:

<html>
 <head>
 <title> Site Title </title> 
 </head>
 <style>
 body {
     margin: 0;
     padding: 0;
 }
 body, iframe {
     width: 100%;
     height: 100%;
 }
 iframe {
     border: 0;
 }
 </style>
 <body>
 <iframe src="http://entertheURLhere.com"/>
 </body>
 </html>

6) Be sure to change entertheURLhere.com to the URL you wish to display in the frame.

7) Save the file and test the URL in your web browser.
