FTP is the abbreviation of File Transfer Protocol that ensures secure file transfer between your PC and a web server. Usually, graphical operating systems come with the pre-installed browser to first establish the connection between the server and the computer, thereafter FTP uploads the files.

Following below steps, you can upload files:

Step 1: Enter ftp://username@domainname.com in the browser’s address bar.

Step 2: A pop-up window will appear. Enter your password for the account.

Step 3: After successfully login, you’ll see some files in your website on the server. You can drag files from your local drives into this folder to FTP upload files to the server or vice-versa.

Note: The first page or the home page should be named by one of the following names so that your site will show up when entered in your domain name or IP address into a browser:

index.html
index.htm
index.shtml or shtm
default.html
default.htm
default.shtml or shtm
index.asp
default.asp

In case, you want a different home page name, you need to update it using the Control Panel.
