If the answer is paid and that you don't need to update it very often I can host it for you rather cheaply.

iWeb is the program on your mac and you can still use it for your site. You just need to find another host instead of Mobile Me and publish to that host. Looks like Jess has an option.
Jess , thanks for your offer , yes I do need to up date it frequently . I will try to look as Kevin suggested for another host this is actually good news thanks guys .

I'm not a guy who is particularly knowledgeable about web design, but it only took a couple of hours with the designer explaining me a thing or two before I could easily update my own site.

Saw some good words about them on Twitter and such. I just don't have the time to rebuild my site right now, but like James mentioned, wordpress is the way of the future.

You can very easily just use FTP from iWeb to upload to any major web host - it doesn't require any special setup. I use iWeb for all my site designing, and I've never had MobileMe.

But i've been using 1and1.com for about 6 years without any downtime.
Stay clear of netfirms.com, downtime all the time!
I too can offer you hosting at a minimal cost, with the databases set up for wordpress, etc.

I use DreamHost (www.dreamhost.com). Free domains with new registration, since you already have one maybe it's a good opportunity to buy it in .net as well. I use them because they are incredibly stable, never down time, a big company that will never disappear overnight on you, and my storage & bandwidth are unlimited. I store over 10gb of media on my server and average 1gb-2gb of traffic per month, but you may not have those demands. It's nice not to have a ceiling though. I pay every 2 years but it breaks down to $8.95/mo. They could have promotions right now, I can always seem to find coupon codes for them.
Things that might be good for you are that they offer One-Click installs for Content Management Systems via your admin panel. While I don't use these because I built my site from scratch, you have options for all the major CMS companies (WordPress, Joomla, etc) free of charge. Their tech support will help you with questions that aren't even in their jurisdiction too. They also offer to host your email through Gmail which gets you a Google Apps account and a better webmail interface.
I don't get a bonus for raving about them (although I'm sure they offer a perk if I refer you), I'm just an extremely satisfied customer. I've had them since 2007 and never once encountered a problem.
Good luck with your decision!

Best site for hosting and GREAT customer service available 24/7. Probably overkill for what your needs are but definitely worth it!
I still use iWeb to design and publish my site and then host it via Media Temple. That being said, I have a few friends that have been using Wix.com to design and host their sites with much success, one of which used to use iWeb as well.
