Can I Upload My iWeb Site Files To WestHost

This article is for cPanel Accounts. Determine where your account is with this guide.

As far as WestHost is concerned, yes! There may be a bit of configuration that you need to do to get things uploaded to your WestHost account from iWeb.

The general steps WestHost is aware of are as follows:

  1. Ensure that you have the FTP server hostname or address for your WestHost account -- this is usually
  2. You will need your cPanel username and password to connect via FTP
  3. You need to be aware of the path to the folder that contains your website files. For your primary domain, this will be "/public_html" minus the quotes
  4. Then select your site in iWeb and under "Site Publishing Settings" select "FTP Server"
  5. Select the option to publish to an FTP server and provide a Site Name and your contact e-mail address
  6. For the "Server Address" enter your hostname from Step #1
  7. Enter your username and password from Step #2
  8. Enter the directory/path for your site files from Step #3
  9. Set the protocol to FTP and the port number to 21
  10. Select Test Connection and if it works you will be able to upload your site!

If your site does not appear in a browser, you likely entered the directory/path incorrectly and your website files were uploaded to the wrong place. You can check to be sure your site is using the correct path through cPanel >> File Manager or your own FTP Client.
