How to Upload Your Web Pages to the Hosting Server


Using FTP

FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is a common, easy and fast way to move both ASCII text and binary files from one computer to another via the Internet. To upload your Web Pages from your computer to the Hosting Server, you should have a graphical FTP program (see below) which lets you type the address and partial file details of the hosting server as well as save the setup for future re-use. Many web-authoring software programs, such as FrontPage, Dreamweaver, and GoLive, have FTP functions built into their software.

Once you have successfully transferred your files to our server, the information you submitted will be available immediately for viewing. All HTML corrections and/or additions are the responsibility of the owner. You may update your files as often as necessary.
