    I just bought a domain name with GoDaddy and built a website with iWeb. I turned on forwarding and masking to my url given to me by iWeb.

    I also changed the CNAME to web.mac.com

    Now,
    I have a unique problem.
    When I type in www.adityaghai.com, it gives a prompt saying that idisk.mac.com is asking for a password. However, when I type in the URL without the www, i.e adityaghai.com-It works fine.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Domain Forwarding with GoDaddy and iWeb

    I have previously used another domain name with GoDaddy and it worked ok with iWeb. However, I have recently changed the domain name and closely followed the instructions to configure the details on MobileME, CNAME record to web.me.com.
    I also parked the domain as GoDaddy suggested as well as forwarded the domain. GoDaddy told me to wait 2 days, but four days later and I still get the following error message:

    Safari can’t open the page “http://www.barriemahoney.es/” because Safari can’t find the server “www.barriemahoney.es”.

    GoDaddy say that the settings are correct and that the problem must be elsewhere -- but where?! Any ideas? Many thanks!

    barryuk,

    It sounds like the domain is not forwarding properly. Try updating your IP address to our forwarding IP using this help article -http://help.godaddy.com/article/5289

    It will take some time for the forwarding to become active. Let me know if this does the trick!
