    playing with url/anonymity: how to display other website using your own webaddress

    I have come to interesting scenario. my isp has blocked one site and i want to my own site to refer to that blocked site.

    Example Scenario:
    my site name is www.abc.com and blocked site is www.sitepoint.com

    All i want is, whenever user enter www.abc.com/sitepoint.com then webpage dispaly the contents of sitepoint but url should be the same as entered. and all the links in displayed webpage should be prefixed with www.abc.com/.

    purpose is simply to bypass isp but using this technique. i want my site to work as simple anonymity website.

    Please suggest me how to design this and reference material to read. i guess url redirecting/rewriting, parsing may be involved.

    Sounds to me like you want to set up a proxy server.

    Why go through all the trouble to build this when you can use any of the dozens of proxy services available online?

    Which works fine until the site in question blocks you.
    You can do this with cURL and some creative string replacements.

    However, as this is in violation of most websites' terms of service, including your host, most likely, and would be a privacy hole the size of nevada if you ever tried to reach a site with login requirements, I cannot give you any further advice than that.
    Never grow up. The instant you do, you lose all ability to imagine great things, for fear of reality crashing in.
