    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?

    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:

    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 - but fortunately I'd registered both names.

    my site is now successfully available at
