    Yeah, I do exactly what you're saying.

    I purchased a new domain from GoDaddy. Once that's done, you can make the new domain redirect to your long MobileMe address. That's done through the GoDaddy site.

    I know it's possible to buy a domain through MobileMe, but I've never done that so I'm not much help.

    You can easily locate and secure a webhost once you register a domain that you choose. You then export your site with iWeb and upload it to your webhost.

    Shortening the url is a different matter, iweb more or less uses a long path to create the pages.

    For instance I have mydomain.com/site name/pages.

    When I use rapidweaver which provides nearly the same level of ease of use, but more flexibility. I basically have mydomain.com as my base page and then from there I have a Multi-tiered hierarchical website.

    My point is you're kind of tied into how iWeb works once you get beyond the domain name portion of the url.
