    Hello I am John I have a business John's Gems. I am using my iMax and iWork to create my company website you can see it here johnsgems.org.

    The problem I'm facing is that every time I load iWork it tells me my business name is incorrect and that johnsgems.org doesn't exist but I can see that it does!!

    My iMax is killing me. Please help.

    I'm literally ready to quit the gems game and go back to farming :apple::apple:.

    Best wishes xx

    Did you mean "iMac" instead of "iMax"?

    Can you elaborate what specific Mac with what exact Mac OS X version you have and what iWeb version you use? Or what application of the iWork suite (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) do you use? iWeb is part of the iLife suite, which contains iMovie, iPhoto, Garage Band and iDVD too.

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses. (see rule #3 under Minor Problems)
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Your website does not load for me, either.

    Also, iWork is a suite of applications. They are: Numbers (Spreadsheets), Pages (Word Processor), and Keynote (Presentations). Not one of those three can be used to create a website.

    He might be confused with iWeb.

    Yes sorry I meant iMac.

    Yes sorry I meant iWeb.

    I have an email from johnsgems.org saying my website is suspended but I am johnsgems.org so I think that was a scam!! I ignored it because they wanted my credit card

    This doesn't stop the fact that iWork is crashing every time I type in johnsgems.org its driving me crazy!!! :D

    My friend Richerd bought the johnsgems.org last Tuesday :mad:

    My neice made me buy the iMacx I think it is running Leopard or Snow??

    I really can't make heads nor tails of this!!!

    did you upload your published iWeb site to the web hosting service that you're hosting your site?

    btw, what's with the different spelling of certain words? "Richerd, Richurd, iMax, iMacx" etc...lol

    Hi John

    I have had a similar problem with my system and i had to change iweb settings in advanced, there is 2 checkboxes under settings to set as passive mode and secure must be encrypted too.

    hope it helps

    Are you sure that's your domain? According to whois, johnsgems.org isn't registered.

    This is by far one if the strangest threads ive read here in the past few months. I'm surprised no one mentioned that there is a johnsgems.COM that works although its not much of a site. Coincidence? Not sure if it belongs to the OP as the .com site is from a Florida company and it appears that the OP is not a native English speaker.
