FileMaker Instant Web Publishing

Legacy Technology

Instant Web Publishing was replaced by WebDirect in FileMaker Server 13, but is still available through FMPHost’s legacy shared hosting plans if required. All other customers are advised to use WebDirect on our current FileMaker Hosting plans.



FileMaker Instant Web Publishing allows you to share your FileMaker Pro files and data over the Internet so that anyone with a compatible web browser can view and interact with them.  This is especially useful to provide access to users who do not have a copy of FileMaker Pro installed on their computer.

Instant Web Publishing, also commonly referred to as IWP, is a fast and easy way of publishing your data to the Internet without having to create web pages.  IWP automatically converts all the layouts in your FileMaker Pro file into web pages.

Securely publish your databases to the web in a couple of clicks. Create registration sites, customer feedback forms, service requests, surveys and more.

No additional software is required—with compatible web browser software and access to the Internet, web users you authorize can connect to your database to view, edit, sort, or search records.
