Can I Host My IWeb-Created Websites?


#1

I need a web host for the webpages I’ve designed in iWeb. I found “old” references to iWeb-designed sites but nothing current.

Can I host iWeb webpages on DreamHost? I’m not very savvy in web hosting so is it easy to do?

You sure can! The directions found here are still accurate: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Iweb :slight_smile:

Thanks! I’ve signed up for DreamHost and published my website. Just took a little “experimenting” to find the right combination for the iWeb “Site Publishing Settings”.

FYI my website: http://lindac7.info/Cruise/Home.html

However, I just tried to update my originally published website but the updates don’t show. Is there a time delay for the updates to show? Do I have to make any changes to the Site Publishing Settings to update (compared to initial setup)?

Thanks.

You have some serious redirection rewriting issues there.

Yes, I know that. It’s so frustrating. I’ve been emailing DreamHost support. I’ve gotten a couple responses and have followed the instructions. But my site keeps getting more and more messed up!

It’s so frustrating. I’m not very savvy about how website hosting works which is why I hoped DreamHost would be easy. Unfortunately I had to change from my web host (Oregon phone company) now that I’ve moved to Nevada.

I’m not sure what else I can do!!!

The last tech who was working with you, Brandon, is working on your latest ticket. Your site should be working much better now; He’ll send you an email soon that should hopefully un-frustrate you. :slight_smile: Thanks for your cooperation!
