With MobileMe gone now and iCloud in if I create a website in iWeb will Apple still host my site and will it be free? Also will they host it now or do I have to wait till fall for iCloud? Thanks for the help.

    MobileMe's not gone until a year from now.



    We don't know if iCloud will host sites. Likely not. iWeb hasn't received an update in years and barring Apple buying out the guys who made Hype and making their own application to school the Flash+Dreamweaver combo, it's unlikely it matters anymore.

    It stays exactly where it was, as @me.com is the basis for all iCloud accounts.

    I reckon iWeb and iDisk will be bye bye when MobileMe expires in a year.



    Who knows, if iCloud is going well they may have a new web page hosting system which integrates with iWeb. But I doubt it.



    iWeb was when everyone wanted to make their own web pages and blogs. Now there are like a million free ways to do all of this, with all the "social" nuts and bolts as well.



    RIP iWeb. At least Apple came out with an alternative to Microsoft FrontPage (remember that?). And iWeb was a pretty cool if limited alternative to Dreamweaver.
