[prMac.com] Denver, Colorado - MacHighway, a leader in Macintosh-centric web hosting, today announced the launch of their new service, MacName. MacName provides domain name registration along with an easy way to connect and use your domain name with services such as MobileMe, Google Apps, Wix, Blogger, SmugMug and Squarespace, and allows you unlimited "firstname.lastname@example.org" email forwarding addresses - for the affordable annual fee of $29.95.
"Domain name registrars offer a way to use your domain name with these services, but their interface is confusing and they don't have a way to create @yourdomain email addresses. Our service makes it easy." said MacHighway President Chris Graves.
"We've had many customers over the years who have built their site using services like MobileMe, Wix and Smugmug, but have felt lost when it came to using a domain name with that site. The advanced Domain Name System (DNS) zone changes can be confusing," said MacHighway Vice-President Tyler Jacobson. "What we've created in MacName is a service that not only offers an easy and straightforward way to create and manage those 'A Record' or 'C Name' DNS changes, but it also goes a step further: It enables the user to easily set up an unlimited number of forwarder '@yourdomnain' email addresses to your email accounts at me.com, gmail.com or anywhere else for that low rate - and that cost includes the domain name registration."
Domain registrars and specialty DNS service providers tend to bury their features among a massive buffet of options and confuse things further with sales pitches. MacName is for people who are satisfied with the site they've created at sites like MobileMe, Wix, and Tumblr, and now want an easy way to link their domain name to that site as the finishing personal touch.
