Good Day,

This is how you publish or upload your website:

The most common way of uploading files to your site’s account is by using FTP. When you sign up you will be sent your FTP account and details that lets you access files in your account.

You can then use an FTP tool to transfer your website files from your hard drive to your FTP account on the web server. You can use a dedicated FTP program such as WS_FTP, CuteFTP or FileZilla. Alternately you can use the built-in Windows or Internet Explorer FTP program. If you prefer a Web interface, you can use your account control panel’s File Manager instead.

We suggest using dedicated FTP programs because these programs have the best user interfaces and support advanced options like setting file permissions and resuming aborted file transfers.
