How do I create an extension to my domain (like mydomain.com/contact)?

I purchased genesistutoring.ca through GoDaddy, and forwarded that to a Weebly website (genesistutoringmontreal.weebly.com).

 

I want to be able to direct people to a specific page on my website. The Weebly address for that page is genesistutoringmontreal.weebly.com/ssat, but of course I want to tell them to go to genesistutoring.ca/ssat

 

A month ago, I had this set up without problems. I did it through GoDaddy, and the domain genesistutoring.ca/ssat was forwarded and masked to genesistutoringmontreal.weebly.com/ssat. Now, this has stopped working out of the blue, and a GoDaddy rep on the phone told me that what I was asking for (and what I'd successfully done in the past) was impossible. She told me that the best I could do was create the subdomain ssat.genesistutoring.ca, and forward that. It worked -- kind of. If you type in ssat.genesistutoring.ca, it will work, but if you add the "www" and type in www.ssat.genesistutoring.ca, it will lead nowhere.

 

I'd like a solution to either retrieve the old way I had (forwarding genesistutoring.ca/ssat to a site), or if this has suddenly become impossible, to understand how I can successfully forward www.ssat.genesistutoring.ca.

 

Thank you so much in advance I sincerely appreciate everyone's time here.

 

*Ethical point: I'm not hiding what I'm trying to do: I tried to get around Weebly's paid services by forwarding a GoDaddy domain to the site. I've had so much trouble with this in the past few years, that last week I purchased a squarespace website, so that I don't run into so many problems. The new website is not finished yet, and I'd like to have this problem above fixed so that I can still send my clients to the right space in the meantime.
