    I looked into why that name is being censored. As far as I can tell, it's because, while Free Hostia appears to be legitimate in and of itself, we have been assaulted by spammers hosted there before, and so we put it in our filter to help catch and eliminate them.

    It's generally quite easy to publish an iWeb site to another kind of host. I found a video tutorial that might help you:

    Generally you just publish it to a folder and then copy the contents to you server. You might have to make a special little file if you get any garbled characters in your site, but that is also an easy fix.
