Where do I put my files once I've connected via ftp?
You should see a folder called yourdomain.com. Upload your files there.

If you don't see that folder yet, you probably just have to wait a little bit longer.. but you can also go ahead and just make it yourself in your FTP client (be sure to make it all lowercase, and without the "www."!).

Also, note that the first page you want to be shown when people visit your site (for example, your homepage) should be called index.html, all lowercase. Otherwise, when users connect to yourdomain.com they will see a list of files, rather than your default page.
