I come from a rather computer-illiterate country, I had to teach myself how to deal with computers when I already was of that age when your brain might not take in new things straight away. I taught myself what I needed to know, not much but enough to interact with the virtual world.
So, dear Stevejobs, I got a Mac and I built my new website on it, and I paid you a few quids every year and pushed a button and my website was online. If my links weren't working, if I had to add one tiny photo it took about thirty second to make the correction and the little icon for iWeb was jumping about to tell me everything was done.
So dear techno-savvy friends and readers, I am now looking for instructions on how to grow wings. From my B.M.S. years ( before MobileMe Subscriptions) I remember hours of wait to upload my very, very heavy website, with lots of high-res photos on a server. For each change I made to a single page or for each page I added, I uploaded all the website again. Every time I tried to only upload one page the website was not working properly.
In my ignorance, this is what I understood about my options now that Apple has cancelled web-hosting.
1: I redesign and rebuild a new website from scratch on a server with an online design software. Auch.
2: I hold on to my website and I use an FTP carrier software to upload my ninetyfour pages all over again for every update. Auch too.
Hopefully someone can suggest me a solution or confirm that the late Stevejobs ( RIP) has hung me out to dry.
