domain forward with mask

Hey guys!

 

Relative layperson here so go easy on me. 

 

I have a website currently, its: https://thepicturestory.us

I just also purchased a new domain at http://thepicturestory.ca

 

Is there a way to map .ca to .us across entire site?

 

Right now, the intended user journey comes through from http://thepicturestory.ca, which forward masks as https://www.thepicturestory.us/corporate-business-headshots but as user continues to navigate menus from there on, the link structure isn't updated. Everything is still masked as  http://thepicturestory.ca

 

Essentially, what i want to achieve is bring traffic in from http://thepicturestory.ca, and when they click thru on other links - have it reflect correct link structure.

 

E.g.

https://www.thepicturestory.us/blog to reflect also as https://www.thepicturestory.ca/blog

 

Is it even possible?

 

Sorry if unclear and Thanks in advance!

Domain Masking loads the entire site in a frame - hence "masking" the original / target site - that is why the URL doesn't change

I see your site is on SquareSpace - I suggest adding the 2nd domain to squarespace and let their system handle the redirects - this should also setup a SSL certificate for the 2nd domain
