Get my site on my web space
Once you have purchased your web space and you have a web site to put on it you need a way to get the files from your computer up to the server computer where your site is hosted.
To do this you can use a simple method known as FTP or File Transfer Protocol. This allows your computer and the computer where your seb site will be hosted to talk to each other.
Microsoft has built FTP into windows and has Internet Explorer the tools it needs to transfer files as though you were copying files from one folder to another on your computer. Most other operating systems require that you use a separate program to do the job.
On the PC there are many choices for this. One is called AceFTP and as they produce a free version we recommend it here but there are many others available.
