View Full Version : Using Microsoft Expression Web to Publish via FTP

July 14th, 2011, 12:29 AM
In Microsoft Expression Web, it is best to publish your site using FTP instead of FrontPage Extensions. To accomplish this, follow the directions below:

Click the File menu then choose Publish Site
If the Remote Site Details do not appear, press CTRL + SHIFT + R to show the window
Now you will select FTP as the Remote Web server type
For the Remote Web site location enter ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is your actual domain name.
If you are on a Windows-based host, you would enter wwwroot as the FTP directory. If on Linux, enter public_html
It is recommended to check the box for Passive FTP
Click OK in the Remote Site Details window

Now you should be prompted for your FTP Username and Password. These would be the FTP credentials included in your Account Information Email, or another username/password you created through your control panel. Once connected, you will have the option to transfer site files betweem your home computer and your Hostek.com server.
