I have been thinking of making a website. The way I have been thinking of creating it is quite complicated, but would save me some money and give me some extra features.

I am thinking of making a website using MobileMe for hosting, GoDaddy for a Domain, and RapidWeaver for creating and editing. I would use MobileMe for hosting because I would also like to get MobileMe for sync e-mail/calendars/contacts and for the Find my iPhone feature, so getting hosting from it too makes it a great choice for me. I would use RapidWeaver for creating and editing the website because I got in a MacHeist bundle for an insanely great price. As well as that, I've made some mock pages using it and it works really well. And GoDaddy because they are just a great domain provider (and I have some coupon codes.)

So, if I was to do this, how would I go about buying a GoDaddy domain with intentions on using MobileMe for hosting (I know that if you want to host someplace else, you need at least two of these "codes" which you create when registering your domain, but I don't know where to find these codes or if I'm supposed to create them myself.) Then, after that, how would I go about using RapidWeaver to publish my site?

First off, I don't think you can use MobileMe to publish a website.

As far as Godaddy goes, you don't need a code if you wanna host somewhere else. You buy your domain name, and simply don't choose a hosting plan with them.

No, you can host on MobileMe. Many people don't know about the feature because Apple doesn't advertise it practically at all. MobileMe hosting isn't good for websites with a lot of graphical content or lots of extra code and stuff like that. But I'm not planning on making a giant website that is going to be sharing large files for download and stuff like that so MobileMe should be fine.

Here you go: http://help.godaddy.com/article/4100

Does that address your goal or am I over-simplifying your question?

Thank you. I actually already found that article. What I need to know is how to create the nameservers. When you register a domain they ask you if you are going to host it with GoDaddy or someplace else. If you say someplace else, they want you to enter at least two nameservers. I don't know where to find these nameservers or if I'm supposed to create them myself. It also sounds like you might be able to say you're going to host it on GoDaddy but then not buy a hosting plan and change to nameservers once it has been registered. I just don't know what to do when it comes to this step.

MobileMe DNS and Name Server Lookup: http://www.who.is/dns/mobileme.com/ should help. If not, I'll dig deeper.

Thats sounds fine and would work really good. Remember to use CHRIS1 from GoDaddy to save money. All you have to remember to setup DNS from MobileMe and change your GoDaddy nameservers to the MobileMe ones. And thats it you should be good.
