How to Get Your Site Online
In order for your website to be visible on the internet, you need to transfer, publish or upload files to the server. We recommend your home page file be named index.htm, index.html or index,php.
All HTML files are uploaded to the public_html folder (directory). Your host is your actual domain name or your dedicated IP address.

Dreamweaver™ has its own built-in FTP program. Access Type is FTP. For Host Name enter your own website address (yourdomain.ext, not ftp.yourdomain.ext – replace yourdomain.ext with your correct domain name and extension (.com, .net, etc)). The folder or directory should be public_html.
FrontPage™ is no longer supported. Use the ftp setting for uploading files and put them in the public_html folder. Any FrontPage™ specific functions no longer work.
Microsoft is no longer updating FrontPage™ but has replaced it with Expression Web™. One function that a lot of people liked about FrontPage™ was the ability to easily build forms. An alternative is to use a PHP script like James Huggin’s script. We use a custom version of the script. It is extremely well documented and compatible with our server software. If you use it and like it, we highly recommend you make a financial contribution. Get your free copy here.
As Expression Web is no longer in production, we would suggest you look for alternatives for website production. The best and most widely used is WordPress which is free to install through Fantastico if you have it available on your account.
