    ok, so i am going to be creating a website using iweb and .mac. after i publish it with .mac, i want to be able to create a domain name (www.(myname).com), and if someone types that in, have them forwarded to my .mac site. i have heard this is possible and i am looking for this option on and i just don't see it. anyone else use this? where is it located on the site? what is the price per year?

    yeah thats the whole purpose of the site. type in your desired domain name and they will tell you if its been taken or if its available. Then you just speed through the checkout process and shazam you're done. Even a avg user like me figured it out, so you can do it!

    ps i got a .info for 2$ a yr! he he

    First, have you purchased your desired domain name? You can do that through godaddy or any of hundreds of other registrars.

    Second, you can use a domain forwarding service like to redirect the domain name to a .mac (or any other) hosting account.

    Godaddy's a pretty nice registrar. I've used them for all of my domains over the years (around 50 domains or so). As for forwarding, it's fairly easy to do.

    Here's GoDaddy's own help document on the topic:

    Also, I'd recommend going for a .info domain, as they're only $0.99/year. If you want private registration (not having your contact info displayed in the WHOIS data), I'd suggest registering three domains so you can get the private registration for free. It works out really well with the $0.99 .info domains, as you can get three of them with private registration for about $3.60.
