Creating and Publishing your Website
Once your site has been designed and developed, you will need to upload the content to your account.
Uploading content can be done through the Client Customer Portal choose cPanel Login and use the File Manager or you can FTP with your account using an FTP client. When uploading the content for your website, it is important to maintain the directory structure; pages will look for files in specific locations, and if they aren't there, the site may break. ALways upload all files under the public_html directory.
Once all the files have been uploaded to your account, you will need to ensure the correct name servers are being used. If you are managing your domain and DNS records with another registrar, you will need to contact them if you need help making the change. For domains registered through CompitentHosting, your name servers are already set.
As a basic checklist, the final steps to publish your website are:
- Upload files to your account using the cPanel File Manager or an FTP client.
- Using the IP address (from your Welcome E-mail), test your site to make sure all images, pages, and links are working.
- Update name servers for the domain. Our name servers information for the server group on which your account is hosted has already been provided to you in the "New Account Information" email sent to you earlier.
