Uploading a website
1. In CuteFTP's FTP site manager, click the
"add site" button.
2. Enter a name for your site in the "Site Label"
field. Insert the directory where your local copy of the website
will be stored in the "Initial local directory" field.
3. Enter your domain name in the "Host Address"
field (e.g. www.mysite.com) , and "public_html" in the "Initial
remote directory" field. The UserID and password will be the
username and password of your dial-up account. Transfer Type
should be "Auto Detect."
Note: If you do not have a domain name,
and are merely uploading to your personal web space, enter
"shell.flite.net" and "public_html" in the "Host Directory"
field. Your username and password are those with which you
log on to your dialup account with.
4. Then all you do is select the files from
your local computer on the left (your local machine), and
where the files are going to go on the right (the web server)
and press the "Upload" button on the toolbar. Remember to
mirror your local directories on the web server by right-clicking
and choosing "Make new directory..."
5. Remember to always name your starting page
"index.html" in order for the web server to know which HTML
document to load first when people hit your site.
