    Difficult to see why Apple will be dropping hosting of iweb sites in the cloud next year. Its clearly not a technical thing as it works fine at present. Has nothing to do with storage either as there probably isnt large numbers using the service anyway. I wouldnt mind paying a few quid for the service even

    Maybe they realized how awful iWeb pages actually are.

    Its because it no longer serves a purpose. The original intent was for people to create a home page, picture galleries and simple websites. Most of that was taken over by facebook.

    Apple is not in the webhosting business. You can still use iweb and upload your website to a traditional web host
