How to Mask My Domain using .htaccess?

The following method will allow you to mask certain part of your website's address.

For example, when someone opens up:

http://yourdomain.com/something

the actual content that will be displayed can be the one under:

http://yourdomain.com/something/else

although the URL in the visitor's address bar will still remain http://yourdomain.com/something.

You can achieve this by adding rules similar to the ones below into your website's .htaccess file:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^something/?$ /something/else/

Make sure to substitute something and else which the actual directories that you are using on your website.
