I have a few domain and host questions and were unable to get a straight answer from neither provider. Mefi to the help?

So I finally decided to open a small website and registered a domain, I am a bit confused about some issues.
I registered the domain at godaddy and am hosting my site on fatcow.
1. When I first forwarded my domain to the host I noticed that after you click on any internal link the address changes from blabla.com to blabla.fatcow.com which looks off and pretty unprofessional.
2. I then figured out that I should try forward with masking and now when you click on any link it stays blabla.com instead of going to blabla.com/contact. I assume this is also not the best option because folks will not be able to bookmark the specific page they are on. I also noticed that shortly after this change, google started showing the blabla.fatcow.com page and not the blabla.com page. I want to change that.
Is forward with masking compromises SEO?
What would be the most straightforward way to fix my issues?
I called the costumer support of both godaddy and fatcow but were unable to resolve my issues.
