I just bought a hosting plan from dream host, and I have received my e-mails confirming that everything is in order to start uploading. I downloaded Microsoft WS_FTP LE to use, but unfortunately I am not familiar with any ftp programs. I have only used ftp from my ISP before.
I do not understand how to use this program. If there is anyone who would like to explain to me how to get started, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
Sure. First off, WS_FTP isn’t a Microsoft application, but you’re right in that it runs on Microsoft Windows. Sorry if that sentence just confused you.
There are a few general WS_FTP LE tutorials out there.
If you have recieved your welcome email then you should have all your details in there. That is the “server” which you should connect to as well as your username and password.
See if those tutorials get you started. If not, let me know and I’ll try and see if I can help walk you through the process.
Hope this helps.
WS_FTP is a very good program… don’t slander it by incorrectly associating it with Microsoft!
