How do I
FTP my web site onto the server?
Your domain name is
your host address. If your domain has not yet been changed to the new
name servers, you can use the web server IP address as host address
(sent to you on completion of the order)
What is my Host Directory? The host directory is:
public_html What is a User ID, or FTP User Name? These are other names
for your login, or username.
Where should I put my files? The files go
in the public_html directory. (the homepage has to be called
index.html or index.php all lowercase.)
Can I change my login or password? You can
change your password, but not your login. A new password can be
generated in your control panel.
How do I upload using my web hosting control panel?
Go into your web hosting control panel:
http://yourdomainname/cpanel (replace 'yourdomainname' with your actual
domain name). Go to the 'File Manager' icon, click on the folder icon
next to public_html then the 'Upload Files' link at the top. All files
you want viewable on the internet must be placed in the public_html
folder, and the home page has to be named index.htm or index.html

There are many free ftp clients on the
internet, but a good one is Filezilla, easy to use and free to download
from a Google search.

name, your hosting username and password, and port: 21
