I've set up 2 websites using iweb and purchased domains for them and have two questions.

Firstly, How do I redirect my domain (www.gremlingloves.com (http://www.gremlingloves.com)) to my .mac account but show a gremlingloves url rather than .mac? I'm guessing I need to put in the .mac webservers, but I'm having real trouble figuring it out.

Also, I have two iweb sites (both hosted at .mac) that need to go to different domains - is there a way I can do this? At the moment I've set up a quick fix, but it would be good if I could have it working smoothly.

Thanks for you help

For the first question, yes, you can. Go to your .mac Account page (top of the left navigation once you log into Mac.com), then click Personal Domain. Put in your domain name and it will then give you instructions on how to enter the CNAME records with your domain server (that's somewhat dependent on where you registered the domain, they have different methods of going about doing that).

As for the second, no, that's not possible at the moment. Apple only allows for one domain per .Mac account. You could, however, forward the domain name, and if you mask it it will keep your domain in the address field, but things like saved cookies and login information won't work very well (unlikely you're using those with iWeb, though, so it may not be an issue).
