Using goDaddy domains and iWeb '08
TheBadAppleBlog has a guide for using personal goDaddy domains with iWeb '08. The author writes: "Apple, in its very Apple way, explains how to pair your iWeb page to your personal domain, but also wins the vague award for mid-2007. (The awards gala is held every once in a while, somewhere.) They instruct you to go to your domain registrar, and add a CNAME record for web.mac.com."
