Upload a Website Using FTP - How To

In this video tutorial we upload a website from our home computer to the internet.

Once you have created a web page or a website and it is ready to be published online, you will need the right software to complete the process.

Some web development tools such as Dreamweaver will allow you to transfer your pages within its interface.

If you are looking for a free method, then FTP does exactly the same job.

Popular FTP clients include Filezilla and SmartFTP. In this video I'm using Core FTP as it's very easy to use for beginners.

You can use Core FTP to download to our computer or upload files to the internet.
