    G'day,
    I have recently purchased a personal domain name from 'registerfree'. However this organisation are not DNS managers, so I have set this up with 'Zoneedit'. I have iweb set up so that (quote) 'MobileMe is configured to host your domain' (lists my domain name). Unfortunately something is not right and it doesn't work. I have put the 'nameservers' supplied by Zoneedit into the appropriate boxes in Registerfree. The latest communication I have from Zoneedit is as follows:

    You can't access the site because it isn't set up where it should go.

    If you want the zone to resolve to an IP address, set it up on A record.

    If you want the zone to redirect to a certain URL, set it up on webforward.

    What might this mean? and any ideas on how to get my domain name working?

    sorry I can't answer your question bit I am curious about mobileme being able to host??? Is this true and can it host all of you domain names? I have 4 domains and this would actually make mobileme very usefull to me then.

    So can soMeone confirm then that if you buy a domain through godaddy or smthing you can host it through mobileme?

    Thanks

    MobileMe doesn't host your domains. All you can do is point it to MobileMe. You still need to pay a registrar for them however.

    Also only one personal domain using CNAME per account is allowed. The other have to be WebForward or whatever. Unless you have a Family pack.

    This page should help:

    Before yo invest a lot of time in iWeb

    Before yo invest a lot of time in iWeb may I also suggest an application called RapidWeaver. It is a simple yet powerful website creation program that will allow you to upload your site to mobileme or your own host.

    Have a look at RapidWeaver at: http://www.realmacsoftware.com/rapidweaver/

    Many thanks Giovanniao, the reference quoted was really useful and it now works!
    What I have discovered though that iweb seems to only work with .com names, not .com.au - but fortunately I'd registered both names.

    my site is now successfully available at www.martinbutcher.com
