I am busy creating my Wordpress blog, and I wanted to be able to publish everything I have changed already. However when I use my website name ( it appears a dummy page of Afrihost saying "Coming Soon". How can I publish my website?

Thank you

Good day,

There are two ways of uploading content to publish on your website.

Through cPanel:

  • Go to your Afrihost client zone (
  • Select hosting
  • Select the hosted product you wish to upload to
  • Select cPanel
  • In cPanel select File manager
  • Select Web Root (public_html/www).
  • Select Upload at the top of the page
  • This will take you to a new page where you need to click on "choose file".
  • Select the file you wish to upload.


Through FileZilla:

  • Enter your host name (domain name or IP address), user name and password. The port will be determined by quick connect.
  • Click quick connect - the server will load up on the right hand side under remote site and the local machine will be on the left hand side under local site.
  • Select the file from your local machine that you want to upload -  right click and select upload or you can drag and drop to the designated folder on the right hand side.
  • On the right hand side ensure you have selected 'public_html' file as the destination file.

Your login details will be saved in the drop down box next to quick connect for future access.

Man, try not create a website by yourself if you are not a webdesigner. Use cool webcompanies. I recommend you to try weblium with it cool wix examples.
