Apple iLife'08 iWeb - Trouble getting domain up


#1

I have my domain (two of them) registered here, with a re-direct to my .mac/lafournaise/… etc which was the easiest way for me to publish my website.

Now that I upgraded to iLife’08 I should be able to publish to thru .mac and have just my domain name show up in the URL window. To do that .mac gives me these instructions to follow :

Add Personal Domain (2 of 2)

Before your iWeb site can be viewed at your personal domain, you must complete the following steps:

  1. Go to your registrar’s website. Define web.mac.com as the “www” CNAME (alias) for your domain.
    If you need help creating a CNAME, contact your registrar.
  2. Return to this page and click Continue.
    Your registrar can take up to 48 hours to update your domain.

I can’t find step one anywhere on DreamHost and now accidently deleted the original “redirect” to the .mac location.

Does this make sense to anyone? can you help me?

Visit this page:

and then select the DNS link for the correct domain.
