3. Install and open FileZilla (if you don’t have it installed already). 

4. Go to the File menu and select Site Manager.

5. Click New Site.

6. Give the New Site a name – such as “ Hosting”  (make sure you replace with your domain name!)

7. Now you will fill out the Host field (typically, set the port to 21, set Logon Type to normal, then enter your FTP login credentials

8. Click Connect.

Filezilla should then confirm in its log that you’re connected, and you will now see a new setup for the application.

On the left side of the window, you will see files and folders from your local computer, and on the right-hand side, you need to upload your files. You can select the files from the right side, drag and upload them.

Please be aware that the files for your website are uploaded into the /public_html or /www folder; those are the primary folder for your website to function from.

9. Upload the files inside the XHTML folder to your domain root or subfolder where you want to use them.

On the left hand side of FileZilla, the side of your local computer, select the file(s) or folder(s) you wish to upload.

Drag the file(s) or folder(s) to the directory location on the right hand side, the side for your web hosting service.

FileZilla will then proceed to upload the files accordingly; depending on their size and the speed of your internet connection it could take some time.

When it is complete your uploads will be visible on the right hand side and the FileZilla log will confirm success.
