I have a site hosted on WordPress. I have a google maps plugin. when looking at the map, I want my domain name to show in the URL, I think example 2 would accomplish this, but I don't understand how to use the code.

this is the "example 2" i was referring to:

Example 2: Redirect a domain to a specific url

There is another way you can do your redirect to show a specific URL, but keep the domain the same as well. If you want visitors to go to with a specific page in mind when doing so, you may use this code:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
RewriteRule ^(.*) [P]

You would use this method if, for example, you had an external blog such as one on or maybe a shopping cart on that you want people to visit your domain without fully hosting the domain there. Now, visitors can access your site using your domain, but see the content of an external URL.

Hello tarafox,

Thank you for your question about showing maps. The example provided would redirect site visitors from one domain to a different domain. That may not get you the effect you're looking for. If you are trying to replace the Google domain on a Google map with your own domain name then the example code would not help. Also, it looks like Google requires the domain name to display maps correctly.
