Hi there. I've already installed and connected an FTP Client to my domain, however, I'm not sure where I should upload my website files to. Any advice on this? Thanks.

Good day,

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

Through cPanel:

  • Go to your Afrihost client zone (https://clientzone.afrihost.com)
  • 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 hostname (domain name or IP address), username and password. The port will be determined by quick connect.
  • Click quick connect - the server will load up on the right-hand side under the remote site and the local machine will be on the left-hand side under the 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.
