I am trying to mask a URL using GoDaddy and a personal domain. I have completed the following steps:

1.) Set up the private domain in mobileme
2.) Updated my CNAME file for the 'www' alias to
3.) Used Forward a Domain with Masking in GoDaddy to forward the URL to my personal domain

The site is up and working, but the URL string is not what I was hoping for with the URL masking.

Here is the link to the site. You cannot access the site by putting the www. before the URL which I think is odd.

I have tried forwarding to both and Digital Marketer : Statistician : Sociologist

The first URL makes it so the URL for the homepage and all of the entries is the same, no subdomains are shown. The longer of the URLs makes it so the URL for the subdomains are all extremely long.

Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? I would like to access the site through and have the URLs show as name. Short and simple.

Work your way w/in GoDaddy to your domain MGR & then into Total DNS Control Panel...

In the far right you'll see under ACTIONS an edit on that for the WWW Host & you should see the CNAME box above...once there, in ALIAS box just put www & then in the points to host name box type in:

That should do it...did for me at Apple Store yesterday & having no problems.
