Since you are reading this page, you are most probably having issues with iWeb. Your website cannot be updated or some of your sections do not display properly. We faced the same issues with iWeb websites so we have created a team of professional Website developers, designers and SEO experts to rebuild your iWeb websites on modern platforms. Below is the short description of each program that our service works with.
What happened to iWeb?
Apple’s iLife suite was probably one of the most powerful application packs of its time. There were countless things you could do on your Mac and the best thing about it you did not need to have any skills. Best thing about Apple’s products is that they know how to make complicated things easy and iWeb was not an exception. Anyone could make a website and publish it on MobileMe. Since 2006, iWeb has probably been the easiest way to create and publish websites. 2011 has brought a sad news to all apple users – iWeb heads for the island of discontinued Apple products. As iLife 11 did not include an update for iWeb, users soon started to experience different problems such as iWeb does not publish changes or even does not work at all. This leads us to the fact that instead of looking for what happened to apple iweb, it is time to look for an iWeb alternative – something modern and functional but at the same time easy to use.
Below is our review of the best 2018 iWeb alternatives that we offer to our customers. Each program has its own benefits over others but all of them are easy to use and will help you fulfill all your requirements.
What to replace iWeb with?
In the world of websites, WordPress is the king. It offers its users endless possibilities and the majority of websites in the world are made with WordPress. To be precise, 59% according to W3Tech’s survey of the top 1 million domains.
WordPress is an open source software. This means that it is distributed completely free and can be used for any purposes. Another great thing is that there are more than 50000 plugins. This literally means you can do magic on your website. Everything from simple slideshows to SEO optimization tools can be found in WordPress market and a lot of them are free!
A lot of us after using iWeb want to give the website a fresh look. WordPress features thousands of free and premium themes so anyone should find what suits their needs.
With the growth of its popularity, WordPress is becoming a platform for anyone, not just developers. The interface is extremely simple and user-friendly. In case some questions still occur, there are thousands of manuals available all over the internet. This makes WordPress a great choice not only for professional developers but to new users with no programming experience.
Here is a short example of how a simple iWeb website looks and how it may look after our team works on it:
Overall rating: 5
- Highly customizable;
- User-friendly interface.
- More complicated than iWeb, however, still easy to use.
By the way, iWebReplacement.org offers our customers a redesign service.
Do you want to see the resurrection of iWeb? You have come to the right place. You will not find a program that looks and works more similar than EverWeb. If you want to get your website as soon as possible with no extra efforts on learning new software, this is your perfect choice. Same design, same functions and the same ease of use. Just drag the necessary element from the sidebar and adjust it.
Unlike WordPress, EverWeb does not have that big number of plugins (widgets) and customizable themes. Another drawback is that the program is quite ‘heavy’ so if you have an old Mac and a big number of pages, be sure you have enough patience to work with it. If you want to focus on the content of your website and simplicity of use rather than on its nice look and cool features, your choice should fall on EverWeb.
The software is free to use until you need to publish your website. The price for a regular license is $79.99.

- As easy to use as iWeb;
- Relatively cheap;
- Well-known interface.
- A small number of themes and plugins (widgets);
Just like with iWeb, you can create the website in minutes using drag-and-drop function. The program allows you to select design framework from dozens available. No need to understand the complex code. Once you select the template, just add text, photos, videos and more. If necessary, you can integrate your website with Facebook, Twitter and add YouTube videos. One of the key features of Sandvox is its own hosting. Publish your website with one key without complex administration.
Another popular tool among Mac users. It is quite similar to iWeb as it also offers design templates, drag-and-drop of media and page editing. One of its key features is the large library of add-ons that greatly expands its basic functionality (just like widgets in iWeb).
Wix is another drag-and-drop software. It has a comfortable editor, decent and sometimes original features and a large set of excellent templates. Wix is clearly trying to break the image of the simple platform for beginners, introducing the all-new third-party apps in the store and updating the functionality. Our team considers it a great choice for landing pages or blogging.
This is probably the most difficult software you can ever find. Long lines of code and dozens of buttons that you do not want and will never have to press. Nevertheless, for those who are not afraid of difficulties, this is probably the best website editor ever created. Not only unmistakably powerful and highly customizable, but it is also extremely expensive. The standard license will cost you approximately $650. After using iWeb, Dreamweaver does not seem like the easy and justified choice for creating simple websites.
