I have a weebly website right now but I want to upgrade to my own domain and possibly start with webhosting such as godaddy or 1&1. I am extremely inexperienced with this kind of thing, and I want you all's opinions on what i should do or what I should pick for hosting services, etc. Thanks! Also, if i moved to hosting, would I have to learn html or would it still work as easy as weebly is? What is the difference between linux and windows hosting, and other things. I just need to know the basics in general. I would love to stay with weebly, but they dont offer things like unlimited websites and 500 email accounts, etc. Thanks again!

Well, if you have the time, picking up how to build a site isn't such a bad thing. You get more control over your site. However, it isn't recommended if you don't have the time to keep an eye on it. Services like Weebly though limits what you can do, makes life easier for you.

There are some WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web designing programs and makes life easier for some. iWeb is an excellent app if your on a Mac. Well Linux hosting tend to be a bit more stable from my experience. Overall Linux makes a better server than Windows do. Though if a company is offering Windows hosts then it's most likely that they are reliable enough to risk business on.

It isn't much but if there's anything else, you can ask :)

I have iWeb, and I love it, but how do I get that website onto the web. it seems like the only option it gives me is MobileMe, which as far as i know no longer exists.

If you click on your site tabs there, you'll see your site name with the MobileMe interface. You should be able to see something like

Publish to: MobileMe (drop down menu)

just hit that and you'll have 2 extra options of uploading to FTP or local folder. If you have your hosting, then enter in your FTP details.

I have had great luck with Bluehost. I have been with them at least 4 years and only a couple of hiccups on the mail server. Pretty much unlimited, $6.95 a month with a special of $4.95 showing on their website now. Dan
