How to publish or upload your website

What is FTP? FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. File Transfer Protocol is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and a server on a computer network.

The most common way of uploading files to your site’s account is by using FTP. When you sign up you will be sent your FTP account and details that lets you access files in your account.

You can then use a FTP tool to transfer your website files from your hard drive to your FTP account on the web server. You can use a dedicated FTP program such as WS_FTP, CuteFTP or FileZilla. Alternately you can use the built in Windows or Internet Explorer FTP program. If you prefer a Web interface, you can use your account control panel’s File Manager instead.

We suggest using dedicated FTP programs because these programs have the best user interfaces and support advanced options like setting file permissions and resuming aborted file transfers.

FileZilla. You can download FileZilla from their website.
