FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the method used to transfer files from your personal computer (upload) to the web server. FTP programs can also be used to transfer files from the web server to your personal computer (download).
In order to use FTP it is helpful to have a program designed specifically for this purpose. Below are instructions for common FTP programs.
Upload files to your web site
ftp address: ftp.yourdomainname.com
username: check your welcome email
password: check your welcome email
remote directory: yourdomainame.com
default first page: index.html
If you want a file to be visible on the web it must be placed in your public web directory (folder). Your public web directory is automatically created and is named the same as your domain name. The homepage of any site should be named "index.html"
