    MobileMe hosting
    Hey guys!

    Alrighty... So.. I just purchased mobileme.

    Right now. I want to start my website.. but well.. It says I need to contact my registrar or somesort.

    I google-ed around and found that I needed to pay for these services.. I thought that apple actually provided this web hosting service when you purchase mobile me?

    Help please!

    The only reason you would need to contact a registrar is if you want to use your own Domain name (e.g. "www.lytheil.com").

    Apple offers website hosting with MobileMe, but that doesn't include a domain name. Your website can only be access via its mobileme url (which I think is something like "http://homepage.mobileme.com/memberName").

    So.. Is there a way to get a free registrar? OR some sort? I just want to get this website up.

    Will blogger work? One more question. Will MobileMe be hosting my website or will that registrar host it?

    Okay, two different things:

    - Registrar: The company that you "rent" your domain name from
    - Host: The company on whose harddrives you put your website so the world can reach it

    Just stick your stuff on your MobileMe's "Sites" folder and anyone will be able to see it. If you want an easy to remember domain name as well, head over to GoDaddy or one of the other domain registrars and sign up for one. Then you can "point" that domain name to your MobileMe account.

    As far as I know no one offers a free .com domain name, but you can get things like .tk for free.

    Do you mean "Google Apps for my domain"?

    You can already publish your iWeb website to your MobileMe account, so I'm not sure why you would need to publish it to Google Apps. As far as I know Google doesn't offer regular webhosting, so that wouldn't work.

    Google also has this webhosting and domain registrar which enables me to have a website, i've already registered mine. The site that dakineyj suggested was great and really helpful. But I still cant a step by step guide in editing my CNAME for my domain in google apps.

    Am clueless here! HELP!

    I have my domain with Fat Cow and when I decided to have Mobile Me (at the time .mac) host my domain I simply did a live chat online with someone from Fat Cow and they handled the CNAME change for me.
