    I'm a big n00b in this topic so I will apologize ahead of time

    I purchased a domain name from godaddy.com and I want to host the pages I designed in iWeb. Nothing too crazy, just some random stuff for me and my friends. But I'm not sure how to do this and I was wondering if anyone could tell me or show me something that can help me step by step.

    Thanks in advance

    Here is the quick an dirty answer, No, this is basically it. If you have more questions just ask! :)

    1. Create your website using iweb.
    2. Go to "FILE>Publish to Folder" and select a folder, the default is the "sites" folder.
    3. Using an FTP Client, or the one web based on provided by GODADDY through your page controls upload ALL of the files that were put into the folder you selected to publish to.

    That should do it. Just besure you upload all the files that are in the publish folder for your website. (It should include the index.html file and then a folder containing any additional pages/content).
