    You publish your site to a folder from iWeb and then you upload that using a simple FTP app to your hosts server. FTP Thingy or Fetch work fine and can be found on VersionTracker

    Is this not mentioned in the iWeb help?

    Why don't you just use OS X's integrated web sharing?

    Can you elaborate on that?

    I am also interested in this...

    Thanks

    Mac OS X has the Apache webserver built in, so you can host a website from your computer (dump files either in /Library/WebServer/Documents or ~/Sites), assuming you can set it up to do so (like, you can get your own IP address and such)

    If you have dedicated hosting, that's a different matter.

    Another vote for Cyberduck for uploading to a server.

    As far as using web sharing from your mac, why would anyone want to waste bandwidth hosting a site from their own computer?

    My favorite app is Transmit for FTP, but not free. THe best free ones that I like are Cyberduck and Fugu.

    At any rate, telecomm, I'm coming dangerously close to going over my monthly transfer limit for my site hosting - there's one particular image that's 400kb in size (too lazy to optimize for web, lol), and that file alone uses up gigs of transfer...ugghhh. If I could, I'd host that file on my connection, cept mine is too slow and i bittorrent all the time anyway. That's outside of the fact that images don't show up if you're using opera 8.51 on windows XP, and that my site is VERY accessibility-unfriendly. Meh.

    Ah, fair enough. Since I'm on a laptop, I'd never even considered hosting from my computer (and my site's on a university server, which, to the best of my knowledge, has no bandwidth cap).

    I used Cyberduck and it is awesome. If in a pinch and I have to do it from work (windows) I use the FTP built in to Internet Explorer.

    yeah, i have a semi-stable DSL connection that changes IPs on me every few weeks (only when i mess around with the router and modem), and a couple of desktops doing nothing...so it would be feasible for me. cept, i've resorted to hosting them on my .mac for now, until i switch hosts, so i'm really not concerned right now :)
