Uploading Your Website Pages With FTP

Using FTP Software Is the recommended method to upload your files to the server. We recommend using the popular and free Filezilla FTP client. You can download Filezilla here.

NOTE: It does NOT matter what type of Website Design Software you use to design your Website on your Computer. You can still use FTP to upload.

NOTE: If you are having a Problem uploading your Websites Pages to the Server Using FTP we suggest you review the Instructions below to ensure you are using the correct settings. If you are still having an issue after confirming your settings please see the “Troubleshooting FTP Upload Issues” Article under this Category.
FTP SETTINGS:

HOST: By Default our DNS is set to use ftp.Your_Domain.com (Where “Your_Domain.com is your actual domain, e.g. ftp.example.com) You may also optionally use your domain or the servers primary IP Address.

USERNAME & PASSWORD: Any FTP user name and password that you have setup in your server control panel can log in to the server via FTP. However to upload to your /home directory (where your pages need to be uploaded to for viewing by browser) you need to use your admin user/pass. This is generally the same user/pass that you use to access your control panel. NOTE: Email users do not have FTP access.

NOTE: If your domain does not resolve to the server yet (you have just recently activated your account or registered your Domain and/or you haven’t updated the domains name servers to point to our name servers, or your domain is still hosted elsewhere) YOU MUST use the IP address as the Host in your FTP software. Your IP address was provided in the confirmation email you received when you activated your hosting account with us.

WHERE TO UPLOAD YOUR FILES: Where you upload your files to depends on which type server you are hosted on. If you do not know which type server your website is hosted on Please see “What Type Server Is My Web Hosting On?” Below.

Plesk Servers: (Applies to Unix and Windows servers with Plesk). With Your Default Directory set to / (yes just a forward slash) In your FTP Client. This will Log you into the home directory. Browse Into (generally double click on) the /httpdocsDirectory. This is where you should upload your pages to that you want accessible by browser. NOTE: You can Optionally set your FTP Default Directory to /httpdocs

Windows Servers: With Your Default Directory set to / (yes just a forward slash) In your FTP Client. This will Log you into the home directory. Browse Into (generally double click on) the /htdocs Directory. This is where you should upload your pages to that you want accessible by browser. NOTE: You can Optionally set your FTP Default Directory to /htdocs

CPanel Servers: With Your Default Directory set to / (yes just a forward slash) In your FTP Client. This will Log you into the home directory. Browse Into (generally double click on) the /public_html Directory. This is where you should upload your pages to that you want accessible by browser. NOTE: You can Optionally set your FTP Default Directory to /public_html

ALTERNATIVE METHOD TO UPLOAD YOUR FILES:All of our Control Panels have a “File Manager” feature. From the File Manager you can upload a single page at a time. From the file manager section in your control panel you will find options to upload new files, edit current files which have been uploaded, and delete files. While the File Manger feature works well for uploading only a few pages to your website it can be a very slow method if you have a lot of pages to upload.

 

What Type Server Is My Website Hosted On?

The easiest way to know what type server your Web Site is Hosted on is by How you Access the Control Panel.

Plesk Servers: Control Panel Access: https://Your_Domain.com:8443 (Where Your_Domain.com is your Actual Domain Name).

CPanel Servers: Control Panel Access: http://Your_Domain.com:2082 (Where Your_Domain.com is your Actual Domain Name).

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
