Where do I upload my files?

Your files will need to be uploaded to the public_html directory.  This folder can be accessed via an FTP client or via 'File Manager' under 'Files' in cPanel.  

To use an FTP: For Windows users we recommend Filezilla, and for Mac users, Cyberduck.

In your public_html folder you must include a default/home page file named index, such as index.html, index.htm, index.php, etc.  Our servers are case sensitive, so Index.html, for example, will not work.  

After you are done with this, delete the Under Construction page (default.htm) and your domain will display the contents uploaded.
