iWeb has always had a Publish To Folder option and that remains in the latest version. Uploading the resultant folder and index.html file to your web space via FTP should make it accessible to all. :)

haha WTH? Yes, you save to a folder or publish to a folder under FILE. Then you name the destination on the web that folder will be placed within beneath the window (www.mypersonaldomain.com or whatever).

The index file is if you want anyone going to www.mypersonaldomain.com (or whatever name) to launch into the website. If not, just forget putting index.html on your site and tell people to go to www.mypersonaldomain.com/FolderNameYouChoose/index.html .... or whatever file in there you want them to access from your link.
