Basic Information

Using WS_FTP as your ftp client to upload your files to the server.

WS_FTP is a file-transfer tool that enables you to transfer your website files from your harddrive to the web server. The screen-shots below will help you publish your site quickly.

When you are ready to publish your site there are three pieces of information that you will need to have on hand to publish to your web space:

1.) Your domain name or IP Address. (You will need to use your IP Address for the first couple days while your domain name becomes effective throughout the Internet.)

2.) Your account username.

3.) Your account password.

To upload Your Website To Your Web Server:

Open WS_FTP. Click on the "Connect" button.

Type in your IP Address, username, and password. Click "Save". Click "OK".

When the program connects to the web server, you will see files and folders in the right-hand side window.

To upload a file, highlight the file in the left-hand window. Select the "mode", "ascii" for text and html files or "Binary" for images. Then click the arrow that points to the right. The arrow is located between the two window panes.

To download a file from your site to your hard drive, highlight the desired file in the right-hand window pane. Select "ascii" or "binary". Click the arrow that points to the left.

When you are done transferring files, you can disconnect from your website by clicking on the "Close" button in the bottom left-hand corner. Once you disconnect, you can close the WS_FTP program by clicking on the "Exit" button.
