Using FTP
We recommend Filezilla from SourceForge as a stable, free and safe FTP client. You can find out more about Filezilla in our Tools section or click here to begin a download.

Once you have installed Filezilla you can add new sites by using [File -> Site Manager] or typing Ctrl-s.? In the Site Manager click the "New Site" button in the bottom left. A form will come up.? Fill out the form as follows.

Host: (domain name)
Port: 21
ServerType: FTP
Logon Type: (Change to "Normal")

User: (username to access Cpanel)
Password: (password to access Cpanel)

Then click "Save and Exit".

Once done you can click on the small arrow to the right of the icon below "File" (it looks like a world and computer), and a list will pop up (maybe one entry long) including the new site you added. Select by clicking or letting go and it will connect to the site.

At this point a list of folders/directories/files/windows comes up. To simplify the view uncheck the four buttons to the right of the world icon which clears some of the power user tools from the screen.??

The small left?window contains your local file directory. The right?window contains the remote file directory. On the right you use the folder labeled "Public_html". This is the location of your website. You push up?any of the files you have changed by dragging them from your local file directory to the the "Public_html".
