You can buy a domain name and forward it to your ecrater.com store.

You do NOT want to mask it for several reasons.
#1 if a shopper bookmarks one of your items when they go back to that bookmark it will only take them to your home page. Will they hunt for the items they thought they booked again?? No oen knows for sure.

#2 Masking does not work well with PayPal.
This is what I get doing a test on a MASKED url


This is what I shoudl get -


the needed info is not there when a url is masked.

HOW to FORWARD a domain name using GoDaddy


Great thing about godaddy is that they do have 24/7 phone help and they will talk to you in English and in terms you understand - if you don't get what they are saying just say ok please explain as I don't know what you mean. They are great at going step by step as slowly as you need them to.
NO, I am not on their payroll! lol

OK -- here's what I do
go to www.GoDaddy.com and log into your account
to the left under my products - click on domain manager
that should bring up the list of all the domain numes you have purchased from godaddy.
click ON the domain name itself
you will get a screen like this -

SEE the Forward - I circled in red ... click it

You should now have a screen like this --

In the box under Forward To: put
http://YourStoreNameHere.ecrater.com/
be sure to click on 301 Moved Permanently

click on OK
then in about 10 minutes or so -- it should be working!
