    Thumbs down Help me Publish!

    Hello. I just finished my website in the file manager. I want to have it on the web put I don't know how. I used Evrosoft First Page to do my pages on my computer then uploaded them on the File Manager. Now I want to publish the website. Can someone help me publish my website?

    To answer the original post:

    If you have uploaded the files via File Manager to the correct place (htdocs folder) then you have published your site - ie made it available to the world.

    All files need to be uploaded - if File manager objects then use a program like Filezilla which is free to FTP the files.

    Your site should have a front page or home page file called index.htm (or index.html) in most cases (although you will see others with other similar names).

    What is the domain name associated with your account?

    yeah it's in the Htdocs directory and it has index.html. When I go to "view my website" I see it but when I go to a new browser it says it can't find page.
