Some iWeb sites hosted by us ...
Yes, you can host websites created with Apple's popular and easy to use iWeb™ software on our Macintosh OS X webservers. And yes, YOU CAN USE YOUR OWN DOMAIN NAME! No more clunky URLs like homepage.mac.com/something... Simply publish your files in iWeb using the "Publish to a Folder" option on the iWeb File menu. We provide easy instructions on downloading your files to our server - either using our convenient web interface, or via FTP (File Transer Protocol).
FTP is super easy. You open a connection, enter your password, then just drag files from your desktop into the application window which shows your files on our remote server. Use inexpensive commercial FTP software like Transmit or Fetch - or free "donationware" software like the cutely named CyberDuck. While Cyberduck is free and works fine most of the time, it's definitely not as solid as Transmit ($29.95) which I use several times every day and can totally recommend. Transmit even has instructions about how to use it with iWeb.
Included in our $20/month web hosting package are up to 5 email addresses @ your domain name. 1 GB data storage. Web site visitor statistics. Prompt and knowledgeable Email and PHONE support. As Macintosh experts, we can answer your questions about publishing websites with iWeb™.
We can register a domain name for you (subject to availability) for $17 (renewable annually) or help you point your existing domain to our servers.

Why MacTalent? We have the experience you need in FileMaker hosting,
because we use it and work with it every day! The MacTalent site
is powered by the FileMaker Pro database from FileMaker,
site is hosted on Macintosh servers running Webstar .
We use Lasso by Omnipilot as
the markup language to connect our HTML pages to the FileMaker database.
we support Filemaker for Windows!
Filemaker Pro is cross-platform compatible, so files developed on Windows
can be opened on Mac and vice versa. The only limitation of Windows files
is that they cannot take advantage of Applescript. We have many Windows
clients hosting their databases with us. We provide file upload/download
using standard FTP access and support for Windows created HTML and image

on CDML Tags
Filemaker 4/5/6 use the CDML markup language. This is a derivative
of Lasso. Pages created with CDML tags can be run under Lasso with
minor or no modifications. Filemaker 7/8 uses a different method, CDML pages have to be converted.
Assistance with building your website with FileMaker and Lasso is available
for $100/hour. Or let us quote you for building your entire web site.
Our staff of graphic designers and database gurus are available to get
your site up quickly with the minimum of hassle.
One question we are often asked is, why do we charge per database? The
reason is that Filemaker Pro (4/5/6) only allows 50 databases to be open on one
server. Once we have 50 files open, we have to buy a new server to host
additional sites. If you have a large database application and/or expect
heavy traffic, it's often more economical to have a dedicated web server.
We offer server co-location services in our secure data center. We can provide full service
server installation, setup and management of your database-driven
website from $199/month, depending on services required and traffic.
