Remote Access

Remote Access

There are three primary methods for uploading content for your website from your computer to the HostPapa hosting space:

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) Programs

This is the most popular way to publish files to the web. An FTP program creates a link that allows you to copy website files from your computer to a HostPapa server. HostPapa supports a number of FTP programs, many of which are available free of charge.

Built-in File Transfer Feature of Your Web Design Program

Most web-building software, including Soholaunch (included with your HostPapa hosting plan), Dreamweaver, FrontPage, iWeb, and Microsoft Publisher include FTP programs to help you publish your site.

cPanel File Manager

You may log in to your cPanel and upload your web files directly from the File Manager (under the “Files” icon).
