    This is a personal web address - it's $35 per year via Yahoo. How much is MM and how do I transfer the domain name?

    You don't transfer domain names to MM, it's not a host of that kind. You can point an iWeb site to that currently owned domain hosted by Yahoo, or you can just put it up on MM.

    Anyone have an opinion for hosts? Have multiple with Yahoo and they increase the cost frequently.

    Also note that Apple will not host your email for your domain name; the MobilMe private domain name option only hosts the webstie name; you'll need a separate email host.

    Don't use them personally, but namecheap.com has rave reviews. Google Apps offers free email hosting at your domain.

    This Apple KB article has instructions on setting up personal domains in iWeb: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1107

    I use google apps for my email for my personal web address. Works great and it's free:) There are loads of places to host you address as you want to move from yahoo. godaddy.com and many more. I use cheapdomainnames.co.uk in the uk and it is good value. I use them to register my address and it is around $10 a year, I then point the address to MM and use that to host the content on iweb:)
