Uploading Site with Dreamweaver - Please help!


#1

So I’m completely confused because this is my very first time ever trying to upload a website with domains and registrars and using FTP. So I have a website I built in a Web Design class, and I’m really proud of it, but despite everything I try to do, it just does not show up on the internet!

I’ve followed extensive instructions on how to set up the information in Dreamweaver, and it said that it connected to my server just fine. But it still doesn’t show up when I type in my website: http://www.shealia.com/.

My domain name is currently registered at another provider, Melbourne IT, but I can’t transfer it for another 60 days or so, but I tried following a tutorial to mirror it through Dreamhost. Also, I have a 2 week trail here at Dreamhost (set to expire in a few days) and I’ve been trying for nearly two weeks to get it running with no success! I’m only getting more and more confused and I would really appreciate if anyone could help me solve this problem! I just wish it weren’t so complicated! Thanks.

You didn’t upload it to the shealia.com directory. Here are some pretty good instructions on how to set up DW for DreamHost.
