    Alright, I have made my web pages with front page. I published them to my ftp account. They are in a folder in my File Manager. Where do I have to move them to to make my home page, and my other pages like about me, or comments. I am really new to this, and I have only used not complicated free webhosts! You might have to break it down a little so that I understand! Thanks!

    When publishing files that you want to be on your website you need to move them inside the public_html folder. To access them its just http://www.yourdomain.com/thefilename

    Example:

    Lets say i wanted to upload a new index.html page to my site, i would open up the ftp and make a connection to my server. Inside i would find a folder named 'public_html' or 'www', it does not matter which one i use, and i would drag the file inside.

    To then access this file i would go to http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html

    ------------------

    Hopes thats clear enough for you :)
