    It's probably best to ask the hosting company, or at least give us any idea of how you are trying to upload your site.

    what exactly are the issues that it prompts...what is it not accepting?

    have you used an FTP program prior to publishing with iWeb?


    It shouldnt be too different; check this video tutorial out:
    http://www.apple.com/ilife/tutorials/#iweb-ftp


    basically with the way to publish it i have found is that:
    Site Name: that will end being your folder name
    (for example your domain lets say is miles01110.com and you name your site iWebSite it will be www.miles01110.com/iWebSite) unless you make changes to server address or url, etc in the publisher

    Server Address - it could be www.yourdomain.com, yourdomain.com (without the www) or ftp.yourdomain.com

    Directory/Path: where do you want your website published to. leaving it blank on some servers should just put in the top level of your domain, but if iWeb gives you an error you might have to put a / (forward slash) or it could be /www/
    as that represents yourdomain.com (the highest level of your site)

    say you want to publish it to a new or different folder on your domain you can do /www/myusername/

    (so when you publish it will represent as www.yourdomain.com/myusername/iWebSite)


    I recently just got into iWeb myself for publishing some blog/sites and that was the sort of way i discovered how it maps out and how to publish it to my share server.


    hope that helps you somewhat.
