Hello,

I created a website a couple years ago using iWeb, ver 1.1.2. I registered a domain name with GoDaddy, and set it up so that when someone enters that url, www.myname.com, they're forwarded to my website. (The iWeb MobileMe url is masked.)

Recently I've been making a few changes, and here's where I'm having a problem: When someone goes to my website, I'd like the site name (which is displayed in someone's bookmark folder, browser tabs, etc.), to read: Myname, Creative Widget Designs, instead of www.myname.com.

I changed my name in the iWeb Site Name field and published it, but it's still reading www.myname.com when I go to the site. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

    You will have to change the masked name to what you want in your account at GoDaddy. Look at the bottom section of the screenshot below. However, it won't take a comma and spaces will be replaced with %20 in the URL window. I'm not sure it can take anything but your domain_name.com or www.domain_name.com.

    But you can try MyNameCreative_WebDesigns and see what you get.
