Apple iWeb '08 has two options for publishing a Web site: Publish to a MobileMe site, or publish to a folder. Apple iWeb '09 allows you to publish directly to your hosting account.
NOTE: If you have built your site with Apple iWeb '08 and want to publish it to your hosting account, you need to use the Publish to a Folder option and then manually upload the files to your hosting account via FTP.
Publishing Your Site with iWeb '08
From the File menu, select Publish to a Folder...
In the pop-up box, click Desktop on the left, then click the New Folder button.
Enter a name for the Web site, then click Create.
Be sure the new folder is selected, then click Choose.
Once the site has completed publishing to the folder, a confirmation message will appear.
iWeb will create an index file, and a folder with the site's name. Please be sure to upload both the index file and the folder to html folder of your account on the web server. You will need to obtain and configure a separate FTP client to do this.
