ftp Site Name:   Your website name

FTP Server:

User Name:   Your user name

Password:   Your Password (supplied by you or your host)

Directions:  You should put your website in a folder, title it so you know what it is. I titled mine "HTML" because websites are made up of HTML code. Inside you need a webpage titled "Index.html" and it should contain the index to your site. Note: the index to my site is Index.html  (click on the blue "index.html" to go to the example). You will note that the index lists all the inside pages by topics, making it easy for the visitor to find what they want.
You also want to include inside the folder, two other folders. One titled for your webpages, I titled mine "Reference1", it contains all my webpages. You may title yours anything that will remind you what they are (keep the title short, probably under 10 characters). The other should contain all your photos. Title it appropriately. I titled mine "Images". You can title yours Photos, Images, Pictures, or anything that will remind you of what it is. This will help keep your site organized.

Left Panel:   To the far right image is what will appear on the desktop of your computer. The left panel is your commputer information (your web page). The right panel is BlueHost information (your web page on the internet). The image to the left is an enlarged view of the left panel (or the information of your web page on your computer). Since this is my webpage, you will notice the index.html and the folders Reference1 and Images.

Right Panel:  The right panel (enlarged below) is the representation of the information on BlueHost (or your site on the internet). The information is located in the folder "public_html"
Click on the "public html" folder to open it. It will display the contents. You may need to scroll down to view all the contents.

Instructions:   To upload your website to BlueHost; Click on your folder (Images, Photos, or whatever you named it) and drag it from the left pane to the right pane and to the folder "public_html". It will download the contents to BlueHost. When that finishes loading, Click on the folder (one for your webpages - I used Reference1 for mine) and drag it over to the right pane and to the folder "public_html". It will download to Bluehost. Do not forget Index, the site will not work without the index page. Be sure to check that the site is up on the internet after completed uploading. If it is not there, check for errors. More common errors is: forgot to uoload index page, Check titles; upper case and lower case letters. The internet is case sensetive. Also check for commas instead of periods.
