    Is it possible to set up a domain name for a .Mac page created in RapidWeaver? I really would like a domain name, and my year of .Mac isn't even half over. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    i think you can get a domain that redirects to .mac and has domain masking. just go to any decent domain name seller and have a read through the details

    www.domain-dns.com

    Gives you IIRC a limited time of free redirection of a domain name to any website/directory you care to point it to.

    Okay, I know GoDaddy is a good service, but will they work with my .Mac site? Also, will it simply redirect to the site, or will I actually be able to make it the websites URL?

    Yes, GoDaddy can redirect your domain to your .Mac site. They even have an option to mask the .Mac address so people won't notice the "redirect".

    Yes, you can redirect, but may I recommend that you use a host. Redirected URL's are ugly, and there are better services than dotmac such as media temple

    Thanks. :)

    Unfortunately, I still have 6 months left on. .Mac, so I'm not going to switch anytime soon. :( But thanks.
