What is this iDisk?

(I signed up for an iChat account.)


Anyways, I was doing something, can't quite remember what, when i realised that I had a new icon on screen. The iDisk thing.

I didn't pay for .Mac, but it says I have 25MBs go with. So I deicded to try it out. I threw a picture into the Public folder and then went to my iDisk in Firefox. When I typed in my username and password, it told me:

SC_METHOD_NOT_ALLOWED


What does this mean? Can I actually use my 25MBs of iDisk for hosting? How can I do all of it?

Not sure what that means, could be that Firefox doesn't support WebDAV very well. Could mean something totally different.

Anyway, yes you can use the iDisk to host your site. Your URL would be http://homepage.mac.com/~yourusername/

Inside your Sites folder on your iDisk you should at least put an index.html page, otherwise in the URL specify the document or picture you want.

When you signed up for an iChat account, you actually signed up for a .Mac account, which comes as a 60 day trial. Until then you have access to all of the services. After the 60 days you have to start paying for it, but you can keep using it for an iChat account even when it expires, just everything else will be gone (the iDisk, for example).

Awesome. I've got it running. Thanks for the help. Too bad it costs like $150.

Amazon.ca has it cheaper,
Someone here online mentioned something about it for about $109.

Here's the thread about it:
Apple .Mac 3.0 Retail Box - $110

I paid the full price for it.
