LC --> Website ?

I have a vague notion that it's possible to write LC stacks in such a way that they function as websites. If I'm not mistaken, one or more Internet Service Providers support this functionality. I think there's a name for it, but I can't remember.

Is this true?

I've got a shabby looking professional website I put together using a primitive HTML editor in some ancient version of HTML. It needs upgrading.

I do know how to use LiveCode moderately well. Without much effort, I could make a LiveCode stack that would look and act in the way I want my website to look and act. I suppose it might be possible to make it all shiny like a WordPress template, though I don't know how at the moment.

Is it really so easy as that? Is it reasonable to suppose that this is the simplest and most cost-effective way for me to upgrade my website?

I've looked at alternatives -- professional website designers, WordPress templates, drag and drop software. All present problems.

What does hosting cost? Any important limitations or gotchas? What are the chances the LiveCode method will still be supported five years from now?

Where do I learn more?

Thanks in advance,
