    I am trying to follow all the steps online for setting up a domain name using MobileMe & Go Daddy, but something is wrong.

    I bought the domain. Then I made a new site in iWeb with just one page. I changed the CNAME setting to web.me.com, and I completed the "add a domain name" process at me.com. I even set forwarding at Go Daddy. (domainname.com to www.domainname.com)

    I think my biggest issue is that I have two Mobile Me accounts that I use on my computer, and I have three websites in iWeb right now. I actually haven't decided what I will do with two of the websites in iWeb. I was publishing one (through the various steps) to a domain with it's own hosting, and the other to Mobile Me. That was working just fine.

    I want to publish this third site to MobileMe, with this new domain name, using my other Mobile Me account.

    However, when I type in my new domain name (which is www.pakgymnastics.com) it takes me to this address:
    http://www.pakgymnastics.com/The_Wigleys/Welcome.html but it's just an error message from Apple.
    ("The_Wigleys" is the name of the first site listed in iWeb.)

    Where have I gone wrong and what do I do now?

    Thanks!

    little update

    OK, I tried typing in a few things, trying to look at where the page is published.

    If I type in:

    www.pakgymnastics.com/PAK/Home.html

    I do get my page. So I think I've done something wrong with the forwarding option at Go Daddy. Shouldn't I be able to see the site at www.pakgymnastics.com once I've done everything correctly?

    Thanks!
