Am I doing this correctly? I've uploaded my webpages that I designed to the cpanel. How do I publish the website? Do I need to use an FTP? Do I need to use a web design program like Joomla?

Hello Arakovsky,

How do I publish the website?
When uploading files to your public_html folder, you are actually publishing the site. I can see your site on the web now. Here is a link to help you understand which directory your files should be uploaded to.

Do I need to use an FTP?
Uploading via an FTP program accomplishes the same thing, just with a different program and interface. FTP programs are usually more efficient if you have a large number of files to upload, however. Here is our FTP Getting Started Guide.

Do I need to use a web design program like Joomla?
You do not need to use a program like Joomla to create your site, though those programs are readily available for anyone who would like to use them. Typically, switching over to a program like Joomla, WordPress, or Drupal would entail redesigning the site as they do not import existing sites very well.

If you have any more questions on the issue, please leave a comment below and we will be happy to assist you further.

Thank you!
