You can build your website with the service of GoDaddy. After coding your website, you have to upload the files to the server of GoDaddy. You can browse and upload files to the GoDaddy account website’s hosting server using the built-in File Manager. After uploading your site to the server, people can access and view your file and pages. Let’s check out the steps of uploading files to GoDaddy web hosting.
First, you have to sign in to the GoDaddy account. You have to open the FTP client and provide your GoDaddy account’s username and password. If you don’t prefer a third-party FTP client, it’s good to use the built-in FTP client of GoDaddy, but it’s not a recommendation for large files. Now you have to select ‘Hosting’ in ‘My Products’ for access to the GoDaddy FTP client, and then press ‘Manage Account.’ Then you have to select ‘FTP Client’ under ‘Content.’
Select the link ‘Web Hosting’ and select ‘Launch’ under your hosting account’s domain name. There will be a Hosting Control Center allowing you to edit the hosting server’s files. Now, go to the database directory and find the stored files of your new site. Usually, you will find these in the initial directory.
Now you have to select ‘FTP File Manager’ in the Tool section of the Control Panel. Now go to your hard drive’s folder having your site’s HTML files. In the folder tree, select a folder name to choose the folder for uploading your site files.
Now select ‘Upload’ in the menu bar to browse for the website files on your computer. Ensure the correct upload of the files by visiting your domain name. In most cases, your site will be live instantly if there’s no change. Refresh the browser.
Select a file from the browsing window. You can choose many files and then select ‘Open.’ Now select ‘Upload’ to move the site files to GoDaddy’s hosting server.
Go to the domain name to ensure the correct upload of the files. In most cases, the page will be live instantly if there’s no update. Refresh the browser, select any link (e.g., internal links) to check if they work well. If they don’t function well, correct the raw HTML file as required. Troubleshoot problems if there are any. All image paths and corrections should have links to the domain.
Uploading files to GoDaddy web hosting is a simple process. It’s important to know this process.
