Publish a Site From your Computer

If you have your website saved on your computer or a storage device and wish to place it on our servers, here is how.

There are two ways to upload files:  File Manager and(S)FTP. For beginners or power users uploading their website for the first time, we recommend using theFile Manager for its ease of use. For developers and power users updating an existing website, we recommend using (S)FTP.

Publish Your Site with the File Manager

The File Manager is available in your website’s control panel and provides a handy way to view and manage files on your hosting account. You can upload multiple files at once using simple drag-and-drop, or even upload compressed archives (ZIP or TAR) which can be conveniently extracted on your account in a matter of seconds (often faster than uploading thousand of small files over FTP).

Publish your site with (S)FTP

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) enables you transfer content to and from your web hosting account, using special FTP software. SFTP is similar to FTP but adds security by encrypting the transmission of your login information. (S)FTP is commonly used by developers or power users to upload changes to their websites onto their hosting accounts.
