    I've always wanted my own page. However, I've never had an opportunity to make one. I'm researching the Website building tool in .Mac..How good is it for those who have used it? How is the customization? Do you recommend it for 1st times? Would I be able to make my page unigue, or are they all similar.

    Do you enjoy yours?
    (Link me to your webpage! i'd like to see what you all have made.)

    thanks!

    Josh

    are you talking about the homepage tool on the .mac site or iweb? if its iweb then yes you can make your site look completely individual and if you can use iwork you already know most of the tools, or you can just customize a template. look here :

    Rapidweaver

    I've spent alot of time and effort testing various website solutions including .mac wordpress dreamweaver flash rapidweaver and a few others that escape my mind at present.

    Rapidweaver has to be the best by MILES!!!

    If you use it with the available plugins: blocks, collage and the rest it gives a very easy yet customizable way to do just what you want and themes can be created by you, or use defaults or even buy fully customizable themes!

    The possibilities are just endless.

    My site was made with rapidweaver:

    That's a nice page! well done.
    So, over all though, since it's included with .Mac, which I already purchased, you'd recommend it?

    www.godaddy.com has really cheap domain names, and they offer domain fowarding so you can point it to your .mac webpage (and it will mask it for you so the people visiting will still see the domain you chose, as opposed to the .mac stuff)

    Thanks guys, you have been a big help.
    Another question:
    Say i didn't buy a domain name now, and I went ahead and just used iWeb and made a website. But then I decided I wanted to domian name, is there anyway I could change it after my site has been created?
