FTP is the most common method of uploading  files, pages, and pictures to the to your web hosting account, which is then viewable on the internet. There are several different FTP programs available.  There are free programs and paid programs.  We recommend you use one of the programs listed in our video tutorials area.

Most web publishing software programs have built in FTP programs such as
Macromedia Dreamweaver
Microsoft FrontPage

Once you have the FTP program installed on your local computer, you will need the proper settings to connect to your hosting account. View the FTP Settings and Connection here

You also have the option of uploading and managing files directly in cPanel. There is a browser based file manager that allows you to upload your content from within your control panel. Get more information on File Manager here.
