The original URL will be displayed in the search engines. If you want a redirection for some time only then you can use 302 redirect on your website.
URL Frame is also known as URL Cloaking or URL masking. URL frame is quite similar to URL redirect however there is only one difference in it and that is the webpage is shown in form a frame from server instead of redirecting the visitor to the webpage. If you are using this type of redirection on your website the client’s browser will show your website name along with any other website.
There is one issue with domain masking and that is it creates duplicate content in all the search engines. When indexing will take place all the search engines will identify all the domain names which will include yours too.

In short we mean that a there can be presence of 2 search engine domains which will display same content.
