This tutorial explains to you how to use CuteFTP software on Windows to upload files to your server. To follow this tutorial you will need to have your VIP PowerNet Member ID and password, a copy of CuteFTP installed on your computer and an internet connection.

1. Start the CuteFTP software and you will see the screen below. Click on the "NEW" button. This will give you a blank screen to setup and use as your connection to your site.

2. Fill in the blanks as follows:

Label for site: Your Website Name
FTP Host Address: ftp.yourdomain.com

4. To transfer files: Select the file on your computer and click the arrow button to transfer the file over to the VIP PowerNet Server. You should overwrite the files on the remote system if you are making changes to your website. It should take several seconds to transfer your files depending on your internet connection speed. After you have finished uploading all of the necessary files, you may exit the program and view your changes through a web browser.

- You can start uploading your files already. You should place all of your web pages, files and necessary subdirectories inside the "root" directory on the remote system.

- You can create subdirectories by clicking on Make new directory on the right hand side and name the directory.

- Your website initial page should be named index.htm to be displayed correctly. All filenames and directories are case sensitive.


5. The uploaded file will appear on the VIP PowerNet Server.

If changes are not visible after you have uploaded new content to your website, please try clearing your browser cache or temporary internet files and reload the page again.
