Internet FTP publishing, 1
Before publishing your site, you must first set up the FTP parameters. You only have to do this once and you can obtain all your parameters from your system administrator, your ISP, or your host.
What’s FTP? If you want the whole World to be able to see your Web pages (your personal ones, or your company site) the pages have to be hosted on a computer permanently connected to the Internet, a “Web server”. Maybe your firm already has it.

). In any case you will receive the “FTP parameters” that act as key for your web space (for more information about hosting and domains, click here
Let’s suppose we have as parameters:
server FTP: tatooine.fortunecity.com
user identifier: test

Choose “Publish >Internet - FTP >Setup...” to setup parameters.
You can modify the data for the “Default” profile, or you can create a new server profile with “Add new...”.
Let’s create a new profile by using “test” as name.
Let’s insert our parameters:
As you see, the password is hidden with “#”. You can store it by using the “save password” box. This avoid dig the password every time you want to get connected.
When all parameters are OK, press the “Close” button to save settings.
