Uploading your website created in Apple iWeb

Note: Apple discontinued support for iWeb in 2011. It is highly recommended that customers move to a modern reliable site builder like WebsiteBuilder, Weebly or WordPress.

What is Apple iWeb

iWeb is a site builder tool made by Apple that can be used to build custom websites. If you want to upload a website built with Apple iWeb to your hosting account, you may do so by first saving the website to a folder on your local machine, then uploading it to your hosting account using FTP.

Please note that any changes that are made to a website built using iWeb must be done so using the iWeb site builder tool on a local computer.
