    Of course you can use MobileMe with syncing anything, but don't think that everyone is having a problem with MobileMe wither, I think it is a great service and while it has had a few hiccups it has worked perfectly for me and a lot of others.

    But if you just want hosting you can get hosting cheaper.

    It's easily possible to turn off syncing. However, like mentioned above, it's much more expensive to opt for MobileMe based on JUST webhosting.

    20GB Server space
    200GB Data transfer limit
    $100/year

    Use Yahoo Webhosting or Go Daddy. They have much better deals if you require more data.

    If you are just looking for web hosting and nothing else, it would make more sense to just purchase a hosting plan from another provider. Not only will it cost you less, but you can also get features like PHP, MySQL, Ruby on Rails, etc.

    I recommend these guys a lot, but ASmallOrange is the best there is. Solid hosting plans that won't buckle under high load.

    MobileMe wouldn't really support a lot of complex scripting.

    Its pretty unlikely that anyone would host for free without ads (How could they make $$?) Basic hosting packages are not that expensive though. I pay maybe $ 120 a year and its not a basic package. I think you can get plans that are pretty reasonable for a bunch less.

    A Small Orange has a $25 a year package, though small, it works for me.

    PM me if you need a coupon for ASO to save you a few more bucks.

    I've a friend who is stuck between wanting MobileMe for syncing and dedicated web hosting for a little website he wants to make. MobileMe would be perfect because he can have all the benefits of syncing along with web hosting, however the one thing I can't seem to get an answer for is how e-mail would work with the domain he's using.

    I know MobileMe will give you a @me.com e-mail address, but what if he wants to have e-mail addresses with his domain, ie. @mydomain.com? Is there any way MobileMe's hosting will allow for this, or is his only option to have a dedicated host in order to have e-mail with his domain name?
