Hello, and welcome to!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to help.

You'll need to set it up through your domain provider. There should be an option in your domain account settings to set URL Forwarding. You'll simply put in your MobileMe homepage address as the destination, and then, typically 48-96 hours later, you'll be all set.

Let me know who your domain provider is, and I can provide more specific instructions if you need them.

Let me know if that doesn't solve the problem, or if there's anything else I can assist you with.

Expert:  Jesse replied 7 years ago.
So what you're wanting to do is create the site in iWeb, and host it through someone else.

You'll need to get your MobileMe homepage address (or URL). Simply visit your MobileMe site, and copy the web address.

Then, go into your domain account settings. These are usually located at the website of whoever you pay for the web address You should see an option for URL Forwarding, where you can paste an address to forward from.

Paste the MobileMe address in that field, and after 48-96 hours, everything should be up and running.

Again, if you tell me who your domain name provider is (e.g. Namesecure, GoDaddy, etc.), and I can and provide more detailed instructions.
