MobileMe vs. iCloud FAQ. What is iCloud? What happens with MobileMe? Where should I host my website after MobileMe?


Since Apple presented iCloud I see a lot of people looking for more informations about MobileMe and iCloud. Some of them seem to be a little confused about what iCloud actually is. So here I try to answer the questions you may have...

Chapter 1: What is iCloud and what happens to MobileMe?
Chapter 2: Where should I go after MobileMe?
Chapter 3: Will I still be able to use RapidWeaver?



Chapter 1: What is iCloud and what happens to MobileMe?



iCloud is a service which will allow you to wirelessly sync multiple computers and iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) to each other.

In addition iCloud also offers an Address Book, Calendar, Mail (@me.com) and Backup features which were formerly part of MobileMe.

The service will be free of charge and start late this year with iOS 5 and OS X Lion.

What happens to MobileMe?

MobileMe service will go on until June 2012 when it will be terminated. MobileMe will not exist after June 2012 anymore so if you currently have a MobileMe Account you will have to move your stuff by this date. How this will work will be announced by Apple someday.

What happens to my calendars?

To know how to embed calendars into your website please have a look at
this page.


Chapter 2: Where should I go after MobileMe?



Will I be able to host my website on iCloud?


No. You will not be able to host your website on iCloud. If you're currently hosting your website on MobileMe you will have to move your websites to another hosting by June 30th 2012.

What should I use to host my website after MobileMe?

More informations about publishing your website to a server other than MobileMe and some recommended hostings are found on my
Publishing and Hosting FAQ.

I would recommend you to use
HostExcellence since it's the hosting I use and I know that it works great. Here you will find some basic instructions and FAQs I wrote on using HostExcellence...

Chapter 3: Will I still be able to use RapidWeaver?



Yes, you will. You will just not be able to host your website on MobileMe anymore.
