Transferring Files To and From your web space

SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is supported on this web server. In addition to current versions of Dreamweaver, many free, downloadable programs are available for this purpose. A few are listed below.


Where do I put my files?

Once you're connected, look in your account for a directory named "public_html". This directory holds all the files that are accessible on the web. To publish a web page, simply upload it to the "public_html" directory using your file transfer program.

You can create sub-directories and put as many files inside public_html as you want, within the size limit of your account.
