I have purchased my website name and hosting from enom.com.

Customer Question
I have created a website...
I have purchased my website name and hosting from enom.com. I have created a website from iweb (ilife09). I published it through mobileme, but you can't get to it by just typing in "mysitename".com, it goes through a ".me" address. When I called tech support from enom.com, they said I needed to get the "record type" (cname?) and "address" and that I had to get that from apple. Can you tell me where I need to go to get this info or can I just publish it through mobileme and use my direct "websitename.com" without .me in the address?

Hello,

If your new service provides both a domain name AND hosting, then you don't need to publish through MobileMe at all. In iWeb, open your website and choose File > Publish to a Folder. Save it to the desktop. Then, follow the instructions that enom.com gave you for uploading your website files. Then you should be all set!


I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions. Kind regards,

Shawn

that option isn't available on iweb 09. under file I only have: publish entire site and then it automatically publishes through mobileme.

Hello,

Aahhhh okay - yeah, Apple moved it in the newest version. Now you can publish straight to FTP. Apple has a great tutorial on how to do this:

Just to confirm - have you purchased domain hosting service only, or have you also purchased web hosting space?


Let me know how that works for you. Kind regards,

Shawn

I found that, but I don't know the "ftp service setting" and the server address.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
