Publish an iWeb Site Without MobileMe

There used to be a time when Apple only gave you one option when it came to publishing your iWeb sites: their own MobileMe service. Granted, several programs came out to circumvent this restriction, but it probably became clear to Apple that people wanted flexibility. So now you can save the site to your desktop or publish directly to whatever Web host you want just by plugging in the appropriate information. This article will explain how, but assumes you have some knowledge of FTP, your own space on a Web host (with appropriate paths, usernames and passwords) and a readymade iWeb site.

Tips and warnings

  • You can also publish to a "Local Folder" instead of an FTP server and use a third-party FTP program to upload the site.
  • One thing about not using MobileMe to publish your site is that if you decide to use the blog feature, comments will be disabled since iWeb stores comments on iDisk, which is part of the MobileMe service.
