If you use the Firefox web browser (highly recommended), you can download the FireFTP extension. Once you have the extension up and running, you can do the following:
- Click on “Manage Accounts” and select “New…”
- Give your account a name (eg. “My website”)
- File in your hostname (“ftp.yourdomainname.com”)
- Enter the username and password you were supplied with when you signed-up for DreamHost
- Click “OK”
You will now be able to connect to your domain space (which may have one or more domain folders, and various other admin-related folders). You put your web files in the folder that corresponds to your domain name.
DreamHost offers a web FTP client that you can use (“webftp.dreamhost.com”); however, since it has a 7Mb filesize limit on uploads it is unlikely to be adequate for uploading video files.
