Getting Down to Basics

The Implementation and Testing Phase

After the HTML documents have been created, the next step is to load them to the server. Generally, this is done by utilizing File Transfer Protocol, or FTP. The first step here is to check with the servers administrators to determine if there are any special requirements for uploading to the server.

Next, obtain an FTP program if one is not already available. Two of the most popular FTP programs available for Windows are WS_FTP and Cute FTP. Two good recommendations for the Mac are Anarchie or Fetch.

Once you are ready to FTP, run the program and create a New connection.

Remember, don't let this part scare you. It is just like using a file manager on your computer. You are merely creating a couple of directories and moving files into them.
