Tutorial Description

The imminent closure of MobileMe is rapidly drawing nearer. Apple are due to turn off all MobileMe related services on June 30th 2012.

This week, I take you through what is needed to migrate your iWeb websites, currently hosted on MobileMe, to an external web hosting service.

It's easier than you think, especially as I show you the process step by step.

There are even some discount codes to make it less painful.

Although Apple have stopped distributing iWeb, it's still supported and should be for some time to come. This means the urgency isn't to move your website off iWeb, but to move the website to another hosting provider. I'll look at moving iWeb websites to another software platform in the future, but this week I concentrate on setting up an account with an external hosting provider and migrating your iWeb website to a new home.

I take a look at hosting services provided by UK2.NET/WestHost & SiteGround.

I also take a look at a "lightweight" solution for small, low traffic websites.

One other consideration is the need to replace your current MobileMe galleries if they are embedded in your iWeb website. I offer up a simple alternative but will focus on replacements for MobileMe Gallery functionality in a future show.
