FTP sites at the very top of the list
and then select the New button
located in the lower left corner of the dialog
c) On the left side of the Site Manager you'll
notice a field called Label For Site.

with your FTP account. To keep things consistent,
please use your domain name in this field.
d) In the FTP host address
field put your server hostname, please refer
to the account information email we sent you
e) In the FTP site username

site password put your account password.
(both of this information can be found in the
login email we sent you after signup. )
f) You are now ready to connect to your server.
Please select Connect and it

hard drive is on the left and your server's
contents are on the right.
b) First, let's get to where you need to be
on the server. In the right window, you should
see a list of directories and files. This is
where you need to put all your website files.
You will also see an index.html
file. This is the default Welcome Page we have
placed into your account. You would want to
be sure that your website's mainpage is also
called index.html so that you
can copy it over the existing Welcome Page.
c) You are now ready to move files from your
hard drive onto your new web space. From the
left panel, simply find the directory on your
hard drive that contains your web page files.
Moving them to your server is as simple as left
clicking on your files in the left panel and
dragging them over to the right panel. Also,
be sure to use lowercase filenames
and don't forget to replace or remove
the current index.html file with your own homepage.
If you don't do this, you may still see the
default Welcome Page even after you have uploaded
d) When you are finished, select File
and then Disconnect and you're
to Support menu
