From the online wiki: http://wiki.developerforce.com/page/Force.com_Sites_Best_Practices#Custom_Web_Addresses


Custom Web Addresses

You can map your standard company URL to your Force.com Sites Domain Name with a 3rd-party domain name registrar.

Use the Custom Web Address field to set the alias to your Force.com address.

To enable a custom Web address, create a CNAME record with a registrar like Network Solutions or Go Daddy. The CNAME record that you provide to that registrar must be your Force.com domain name and not the site URL. For example, if you entered "mycompany" when registering your Force.com domain, the CNAME must be mycompany.force.com, not the full value of the site URL.

If you have not registered this address with a registrar, entering a value in the Custom Web Address field has no effect.

 Remember: you must create a CNAME record with a 3rd-party registrar AND populate the Custom Web address field in order for this feature to take effect.

 CNAME mapping to your Force.com domain may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

 Custom Web addresses are not available in Developer Edition or Sandboxes.
