    Hi Lexcy

    There are a couple of ways that come to mind:

    1. Embed your form into your own web pages via one of the methods available in the Embed Form Wizard:

    2. Use a URL redirection service like ShortURL to generate a different URL and mask the real address.

    Should you require additional information on the above methods, please feel free to ask.

    Hi Wayne

    Quick question if I use the short url method or if I embed the form into my
    own website will it keep its https status of security?

    Hi again

    According to our user guide, the web page within which the secure (https) version of the form is to be embedded must itself be secure (https), otherwise unsecure (http) version would have to be used.

    Judging by the information in this article, URL redirection may not be such a good idea after all, unless you own the domain in which case one of the free and open source applications listed at the article's conclusion can be used to minimize the associated issues discussed therein. But to address your query regarding compromisation of security when using URL redirection, to the best of my knowledge, there should be none.

    It seems to me that you may be looking for something more along the lines of changing this to mask your form url via a Custom Domain. Please see this guide for more information http://www.jotform.com/help/144-How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform.
