Welcome to the Mac Forums.

I moved your post to this forum where you will be more likely to get an answer to your question.

The answer is: yes, it's possible, but very very tricky.

In a nutshell, iWeb doesn't use a standard system for storing sites, since it is not an HTML editor. There is a file in your users/(you)/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder called "Domain".

You would copy this file to your other computer (on a USB stick or some such method) and place it in the same place on the other machine.

HOWEVER here comes the tricky part: anytime you make changes to the iWeb site on one machine, you will need to re-copy the "Domain" file on that machine to the other machine BEFORE you make any changes to the site using the other machine. I have a client that uses Chronosync for this, which works great, BUT one has to remain very vigilant about it.

Bottom line: bad idea. Pick a machine that is going to be the sole machine that updates that site, and that's it. Much easier for you, and much lower risk of anything bad happening.
