Can I use .Mac with Wordpress?

With the new feature in .Mac allowing you to use your own personal web address, I was wondering if I can also use my .Mac space to host and update my Wordpress blog?

Wordpress requires a database to function. IIRC, .mac doesn't include any database support.

Yeah, that's a big no no for me. I love the ease in which you can do loads of stuff, but no sql means no wordpress blogs (the iWeb blogs don't allow commenting which sucks), and as far as I can tell there's no way to stick php in it there either. At the moment my website is a horrible mixup of iWeb and php/sql gallery/wordpress. (I'll sort it all out one day when I can be bothered. It probably wont be iWeb, as much as I like the software.

[.edit] sorry, was mostly referring to iWeb above, I don't have .Mac. But as you need iWeb to make a site on .Mac it all seems valid.
