I am using iWeb 09.

My domain is on 1and1. My domain is http://www.eglafterhours.org/

When I publish the website, it becomes the oh-so-easy-to-remember:

http://www.eglafterhours.org/eglafterhours/eglafterhours/Home.html

I cannot be the only one with this problem. Short of calling Nurse Kratchet for my meds, does anyone have any suggestions?

    First you named your site eglafterhours in iWeb. Rename it to something else an you'll get rid of one of them. Secondly, you uploaded both the index.html file and the eglafterhours site folder to your server. That eglafterhours folder added the second one. If you publish to a folder on the hard drive and use an ftp client like the free Cyberduck to upload just the contents of the eglafterhours foldder you will get ride of one of the occurrences.

    If you do both then you could have http://www.eglafterhours.org/newsitename/Home.html

    To learn about the concept of Sites in iWeb and how to avoid the iWeb Sitename in the URL, read my blog :

    All you have to do is change your site name in iWeb from eglafterhours to something short like Site.

    If you still don't like this, then all you need do is publish to a folder from within iWeb and then use Cyberduck or Transmit to upload only the contents of your site folder rather than the whole site folder. If you do this your url will then become http://www.eglafterhours.org/page name.html.
