    I created a website with my .MAC membership. If I don't renew, will they remove my site? Also, will my email (name@mac.com) not work anymore?

    Thanks for the help.

    What do you think you're paying for? If you stop paying for services, of course the services will no longer work.

    Ok, I figured the email probably wouldn't work, but I wasn't sure if the site would come down. I thought that maybe it just won't let you update them.

    No need to be smug about it. Can anyone confirm if the site is taken down?

    Duff-Man says....of course it is taken down. You can always read the faq and docs on Apple's website - it is all there.....oh yeah!

    I'm not trying to be smug. I'm trying to answer your questions.

    Hosting a website costs money. Every time someone visits the site, Apple's bandwidth is used. The site itself takes hard drive space. While one site is pretty cheap, many sites combined are not. Apple is not going to keep every former subscriber's site up because it will cost money and not generate any for them. As I said before. When you stop paying for services, the services stop working.

    No, Apple will host your website for free.
