The first thing we need to do is set the program to connect to your web host. You will need the following information:

Host: Your FTP server can be found next to the corresponding user on the accounts table in your FTP Manager.
Username:  your ftp username
Password: your ftp password

The FTP port is 21 and is filled in automatically.

Once you have entered the informations, click Quickconnect and the file listing will appear. Find the public_html directory and double click on it.

Then, select the files to be uploaded and drag-and-drop them under the public_html folder. Wait for the transfer to be completed.

Note: If you are using our windows server, the upload folder will be ‘wwwroot’.
