How to setup URL Frame in cPanel

URL Frame works similar to URL redirect except that instead of redirecting the visitor to your web page, the web page will be fetched from the other server and displayed in a frame. The difference is that after redirection, the browser's address bar will continue to display your domain name.

Unfortunately, there is no tool in cPanel which would automatically setup URL frame. However you are still able to do that using certain HTML tags in your site index file.

NOTE: Only the <iframe> tag is still supported in HTML5

<frameset> and <frame> tag is no longer supported in HTML5

iframe tag

The "iframe" tag specifies an inline frame. An inline frame is used to embed another document within the current HTML document.

To set up URL frame using this tag, insert the following code to your main index file and save the changes (make sure example.com is replaced with the destination domain and Site Title with the actual site name you wish to be displayed in the browser tab):

<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://example.com"/>
</body>
</html>

frameset tag

The "frameset" element holds one or more elements, each element can hold a separate document, so there will be multiple pages fetched into your index page.

To set up URL frame using "frameset" tag, insert the following code to your main index file and save the changes (make sure example.com is replaced with the destination domain and Site Title with the actual site name you wish to be displayed in the browser tab):

<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://example.com"/>
</body>
</html>

noframes tag

The noframes tag was used as a backup tag for browsers that did not support the "frame" element. More specifically, it was useful for linking a non-frameset version of a web page or letting the user know that their browser doesn't support frames

Example code

<frameset cols="25%,25%,50%">
<frame src="frame1.htm">
<frame src="frame2.htm">
<frame src="frame3c.htm"> <noframes>Sorry, your browser does not support frames.</noframes>
</frameset>

NOTE: "noframes" and "frameset" tags are not supported in HTML5

Save your work as an .html file and upload it
