When your page is finished and ready to be publish on the Web, Dreamweaver makes it easy with custom publishing features.

Follow the tutorial below to learn just how easy it is, Be sure to save your pages first!

User Name:
  • ftp_domainnamecom (example)

  • Please see your configuration email

Host Directory:
  • /httpdocs/ for normal web pages (http)
  • /httpsdocs/ for secure pages (https)

Home Page File:
  • index.html or index.htm or index.php (lower case)
  • Where domainname.com replace to your domain name.
  • If you have problems with connecting to your website, Please check and make sure that your local internet settings (Firewall, Anti-Virus, IE Internet Options Security Settings) won't block you from connecting to the server on Port: 21.
  • Unless default file on httpdocs and httpsdocs, Please DO NOT delete ANY directory or files that have been created by the system, otherwise your web site may disappear into cyber oblivion!
