Uploading Your Site
One of the first things you will want to do is to upload
your existing site or project to the server so that it can be public. This guide will take you through all the
steps you will need in order to get this done. Some sites will require the use
of a database, which will be covered in the guide as well. It is important to note that you will need
additional software not provided by myhosting.com, such as an FTP program, or
database connection software.
First, log in to your Control Panel at https://manage.myhosting.com. If you
have multiple subscriptions, first please choose the correct subscription under
the Select Subscription drop-down list.
Now click the Website Hosting tab up top and you will see
the list of webspaces available for that subscription. You should see the domains assigned to the
Click on the domain name in question to get to the details
screens for this webspace.
Now the first thing you need to do is take note of your
domains root folder, as this is where your files must be stored for that
domain. If you have multiple domains hosted on the same webspace, this is very
critical information. To view this data, scroll down on the Domain Info page
the Hosting Services section.
What you are looking for is the Web Hosting section; there
you find the Location column. This will
detail your domains root folder. Please
take note of this, as you will need it momentarily.
Now, scroll up to the Website tools section as you will find
your FTP credentials, and other management tools there.
Once you click on your FTP access info you will be presented
with your login credentials. By default, you will need to reset your password:
simply click the Edit button below and create your FTP password.
Once you have reset the password use the information to log in
with your favourite FTP program. For the purposes of this guide we will use FileZilla.
For windows or IIS webspaces you will need to click on Web
Hosting Settings in order to view your FTP credentials. Once you click the button, you will need to
scroll down to the bottom of the next page to the following section
Now, with your FTP program make your connection to the
server and locate your root folder. In
this example my root location was /afasfadfsaff.com. Therefore, when I log in,
I will need to find this folder under httpdocs.
Any content you upload for your domain root location will be
available by the domain, as long as it is located in the correct root
folder. As you may have noticed, there
are two different ways of getting this information if you are on Windows or Linux.
