    I would like to publish my iweb built site to the internet.

    I have two domain names, purchased through Godaddy, that both currently redirect to another website. I would like these to point to my website, and I would like to host through godaddy.

    What exactly do I need to purchase on Godaddy? I don't expect much traffic, so the cheapest web hosting plan should be fine. Will I be able to:

    1. Manage the website easily through iweb, using the upload to ftp feature, if I purchase godaddy hosting?

    2. point the two existing domains to the new website without much hassle?

    Answers and general pointers would be very helpful- I'm new to this.

    Yes, you will be able to upload the website using the iWeb FTP feature, however MobileMe only features will not work, for example, commenting.

    And yes, GoDaddy should give you the option to set up the domain names to work with the site. I'm sure it should be relatively self explanatory once the hosting is set up.

    All you should need is a basic hosting plan from wherever you feel like buying hosting from. All that matters is that it allows you to upload files basically. No fancy script support et cetera is needed.
