Don't they have free software for designing webpages?
iweb has pedesigned templates for personal webpages. You don t neccessarily need to make your own. if your stuck just go to the apple support page. http://www.apple.com/support/
ehm what is it?
Yeah, you can upload your site that you've made in iWeb to another server other from .Mac... It's quite simple, really, all you need to do is to save the finished website to your hard drive and upload it to the server, using a FTP client, or just simply using the File Managers built into DirectAdmin and CPanel. I wouldn't recommend ditching HTML though... It gives you more customizability and you would feel more proud of the website. Plus, I hear the code generated by iWeb is really ugly... *Compatibility Warning*
Be carefull with iWeb, all feature are only available on .Mac accounts and few other servers...
This is the case of diaporamas and visit counter...
The Diaporamas works on my school's server but not on multimania...
Will try when i'll be abble to on Frihost
It's right that sources are really ugly, so don't use it if you want to edit sources
You can try RapidWeaver too ...
