Website Hosting Help
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol. You have to use an FTP connection to upload your files to a web server, thus making your files available on the Internet.
Typically, you will work with your files offline and afterwards upload them with your FTP client. Remember that your home page must be called index.html. This page is the page appearing when people try to access your home page without writing a specific filename, normally just your domainname, www.yourname.com, for example.
