iWeb is a great platform for mac users to be creative and build wonderful websites that they can easily publish to the web and share with people around the world. There are some common problems that we have found along the way whilst speaking and assisting our customers that use iWeb.
Since the passing of MobileMe, many iWeb users are having to move their iWeb Sites to New Web Hosting. This can be a bit of a challenge as there is a new learning curve involved in understanding what’s required to get your iWeb site online again. We are busy creating Screencasts and written Tutorials to help our iWeb users and so check out our other Guides.
Publishing or uploading your iWeb Site to new web hosting outside of MobileMe can seem a little tricky. As MobileMe no longer exists, you need to have your own web hosting space to be able to publish your iWeb Site. We have created a hosting plans that are perfect to get your iWeb Site online with ease.
Security has always been an important factor on the internet especially with web hosting accounts. Over the past year we have been implementing more security features to ensure that Rediweb Hosting customers receive the best level of protection available and one that often causes some confusion is the FTP Locking function.
When you make changes to the DNS settings of a Domain Name, like changing the nameservers of your domain to point to your new Web Hosting Plan, the changes are not immediate. I wish there was an express lane for DNS updates, but it does not exist. Whilst we can do nothing to speed the process up, it may help if you understand what’s happening.
If you are moving your Web Hosting from a different service provider ( your current Web Host ), chances are you may have a Domain Name registered through them and associated with the Web Hosting you had with them. Perhaps you have been planning your website for quite some time and you previously registered your Domain Name/s with another registrar to keep them safe.
One of the things that many iWeb users miss, is the counter feature which was a simple widget to include in your iWeb site pages directly within the iWeb app. As this is unsupported outside of MobileMe, we have to look at using a different method to get the hit counter working on our iWeb sites.
All our Web Hosting Plans come with a fully featured Email Service. Depending on the web hosting plan you select, you will be able to add anything from 5 Individual Email Accounts all the way up to Unlimited Email accounts. In this video, we show you how to add your email accounts to Apple Mail.
