At this point, then you will need to have your domain name chosen and registered, and your ISP will have supplied you with a user id and password for the site.
In this lesson, we discuss how to download, set up, and use your FileZilla program to upload files to your server.
Note that even if you use a different FTP program, you may want to watch the last part of this video, which describes the process of using an FTP program for testing, in general.
Note: I strongly suggest you view all our videos in full screen mode: click the icon in the lower right corner of the video area (it shows four arrows pointing to the corners of the screen). When you are done, the Esc ("escape") key returns you to regular mode.

Hands on exercise
For those who want to practice using what we cover in this class, we continue the process with the following lab: uploading and testing your files from your ISP's server.
First, download and install FileZilla.
Next, create and upload an index.html for your real website (it could be just a placeholder like "This page under construction") upload it directly to the public.html directory. Ensure you can access it.
Then upload MyWebFiles to your website as demonstrated in the video.
Test to ensure you can access yourwebsite/MyWebFiles from your browser successfully (you should be able to access the index.html you created earlier in lesson 3).
