To publish your website you can just click on file manager in cPanel. Once the file manager has opened you will be able to upload your web content. Make sure that you upload your files to the "public_html" folder. Also the files that you upload needs to be exactly the same way online that it is on your local computer.

You also have the option to email us at support@afrihost.com if you battle.

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

Through cPanel:
Go to your Afrihost client zone, click on hosting and select the hosted product you wish to upload to.
Select cPanel, under Files select File manager. Select Web Root (public_html/www).
Once in web root, at the top, select Upload.
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.
Once you 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, 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 drown box next to quick connect for future access.
