    You need to upload it to your web hosting space. This would normally be done via FTP. You can either do this via the command line (Terminal.app) or via a graphical FTP client you provide. Basically just like if you had written some HTML files by hand.

    Click on "export to folder." Then drag that folder into your ftp uploading software. I use CyberDuck- it's free, it's easy to use, and it has a rubber duck for an icon. You can't beat that!

    EDIT: I meant CyberDuck, not CuteFTP. Thanks djstarrock!

    Don't you mean Cyberduck.

    I have a tiny feeling the OP might not know what an FTP is and doesn't have their own domain. I could be wrong though.

    @ Tofaha: Do you have a server? If not you have to set one up first. I don't know where MI is but I'm sure people on this forum can advise you on how to do so. Ask in the web-development section. Alternatively, if you want a simpler way, go to blogger.com and set up a blog. That's free and very user-friendly. iWeb won't work with it though.

    Getting a .Mac subscription is also very user-friendly, but will cost you some money. But you can easily create pages with iWeb for it.

    If the OP is just seeing what iWeb is about, can I suggest he/she maybe go get the free 60-day trial of .Mac?

    It is a little expensive given that you're paying for it annually, but divided it's really only about $10 a month. And you're paying a bit of a premium for not having to spend the time learning HTML, and fussing around with FTP.

    Still, that's a pretty good price for a no-hassle web host (ie: you don't even have to know what FTP is to have a decent website).

    Factor in iSync (if you have more than 1 Mac) and it's a fairly decent service at a reasonable price.

    Either way, 60 days for free is worth a try.
