    Dear MacRumours members

    I never used Mobile Me to host any kind of website before - but I got my hands on a piece of software called "Delicious Library". Its a library app where you can keep track of all your stuff, books and DVDs and the sort.

    The app got this feature, publish to Mobile Me. It uploads a cool website like a library where users can browse your stuff.

    It uploads to www.homepage.mac.com/user/deliciouslibrary.

    Why on earth does Mobile Me use .mac.com for this? The gallery and everything is on gallery.me.com?!?!?!

    I just don't think its very "stream-lined" when it uses different prefixes.
    Any thoughts?

    Oh yeah btw,.. is there no way to make the URL easier?

    like www.user.me.com? or something shorter than homepage.mac.com?

    Thanks!

    Of course it won't. It doesn't have his username in it.


    Homepage is a legacy feature from .Mac that was discontinued. However, you can still access any files that are placed there (the Sites folder on your iDisk).

    Since it is a legacy feature, it was updated to have the new domain me.com
