    I use iWeb with MobileMe but the site only works if I type "www" before the domain name. Is there a way to point the domain itself (ie: xxxxxx.com without the www in front) to www.xxxxxx.com?

    That depends on your registrar not on MobileMe nor on iWeb. You should contact your domain registrar and ask them how to set up CNAME for the domain without using www.

    You need to setup CNAME for both
    www.yourdomain.com
    and
    yourdomain.com

    I was also having this problem, this how to sort it:

    Don't bother messing around with the CNAMES instead, set-up forwarding, and set it to forward to your domain including the www.

    So if you type in: yourdomain.com, it will automatically forward to www.yourdomain.com

    This also works if you enter a full URL, such as yourdomain.com/site/page.html, will automatically forward to www.yourdomain.com/site/page.html

    This worked for me.
