    Making a website
    Hi,
    I'm really interested in making a website with iWeb when I get my Mac. Its just a casual website and I really don't want to pay to host it.
    What options are there and is it something thats simple to do?
    I've thoroughly researched iWeb and I'm more than confident I'm creative enough to make a good looking website with great content, but its the hosting side of things Im not so confident about.
    I had looked into a mobile me account, but thats 60 a year. And as I said before, I really don't want to pay to host a website.
    What free options do I have?

    Many thanks.

    Here's a good idea...

    Use Dropbox for hosting.

    Hostable.com is offering a 3-year hosting plan for $1.
    Yes, $1 total -- for three years.
    It's not the same as free, but it's pretty darned close.
    In three years, either renew for the going rate or find another host, assuming the site still exists.

    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    MobileMe offers other things besides hosting, so in my view the hosting IS free, since what I am really paying for (in my use, YMMV) is the syncing, the photo galleries, the ad-free/snoop-free email, the IMAP service, Find my iDevice and okay, yes the hosting (multiple sites).

    From my perspective, it's cheap for what you get (particularly if you buy it from Amazon rather than Apple directly) and I hear they will be revamping it soon, perhaps with a lower pricetag.
