  • Hello Johnykbd,

    There are several ways to do this.  The easiest way to hide the details of a request between machines is to make the request secure (re: https).  MSDN has good documentation on how to do this here.  This might also be helpful.

    To enforce https on a specific controller or action then you can add RequireHttpsAttribute.

    Cheers, Jeff

  • If you mean to hide the parameter from browser's address bar, try open a popup window with address bar hidden (may not work for some browser), or open your page in an iframe of a main page.

    If you're willing to do more work, you can implement your base controller (if every controller in your site have the same base controller to inherit from) to push the model to session then return javascript "history.pushState(url);" with script tag as page content to reload the page without parameters, then reload the model from session if found. (I'll leave how to "determine whether it's the first visit or have visited before but redirect to here again from other pages" to you to decide. Note that this is really depending on how you implement your pages, and not considering all aspect of usage included requests made by your components will give you subtle bugs difficult to diagnose)
