publishing

Once you have completed your web site, you will need to publish it. This will be an ongoing process every time you need to update pages.

The main method of publishing to a web site is to ftp (file transfer protocol) from your development site (wherever you have been building your site) to the live server.

The most user friendly ftp tool I have found is WS-FTP from http://www.ipswitch.com/. You will have a user ID and password from your host - this is all you need to set it up. Once you have set the FTP tool up, all you need to do is pass the files across from your development site to the live server. Use the help facility within the tool to find out more.

There is also a FTP tool within Dreamweaver, which is also simple to set up and use.
