FTP Description
FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol," and this is how you get your website from your computer, to our servers, then onto the Internet. If you don't FTP your site to us, it will not be available on the Web. Your web site design software may have FTP built-in as a "publish" command or you may want to use a separate program (an FTP client)just for FTPing.
