Publish your account on a “local folder’ so that you can grab a copy of your website to your computer. Choose the folder where you want your file to be saved.

Once you have finished copying your files on your computer, you can open your FTP client and log in to your Bluehost account. Provide your Bluehost login details – username and password. Extend the dialog box and type in ‘public_html’ so that your FTP client will open the pubic_html folder. This is where your iWeb website files will be saved.

On your desktop or on the folder where you have saved your iWeb website files, select all of the folders that you just have copied and drag it on the public_html box. Wait for the transfer to be completed and you are done.

You can log out of your FTP client and check your website that is now being hosted at Bluehost.

After you have transferred all of your files, you can start checking editing your website to make sure that everything is in place and everything is working fine.
