At iWeb, system stability and manageability is important to our customers and our staff.  One of the ways that we ensure stability is by regularly reviewing our current hardware and software offerings and testing to ensure optimal reliability.  From time to time that requires us to remove support for existing technologies.  

iWeb is announcing the end of support for the operating systems listed above. Please review the following chart for detailed timelines for reinstallation and support. Products reach their end of support for a number of reasons. They include: 

  • Diminishing demand by existing and new customers
  • Product has been superseded by a newer version
  • Product support is no longer available from the manufacturer
  • Streamlining offerings to ensure support for new technologies
  • Standardization of offerings
  • To ensure compatibility with new hardware
