It can't be an actual website URL unless you actually have that domain hosted on your personal machine.

Surely you aren't going to do that???? It exposes you to all the nasties of the internet. Every possible virus attack will be directed at you.

I see that your site's nameservers are westnethosting.com.au so I would assume that you will be hosting the site with them?? So you will have to "publish" your site to their servers. I think that DW will do that for you, or you can just use FTP from Windows Explorer to do it.

You know, you ought to at least put up a "placeholder" web page on the server. Even if you aren't ready to upload the entire site.
