How to put your website online - how to FTP to a domain & upload files to a webhost

4999 ratings | 501697 views
Get your site online as cheap and quick as possible! Tons of people have asked me "how do I get my site online"? And here's how. I recommend HostGator (http://bit.ly/1UCHuf4), since they have the best customer service as well as the best price. For $6/mo, you get unlimited domains/websites, so if you're building websites for other people, you can bill them monthly and not have any expenses increase. All you need is a Domain Name: $12/yr Webhost: $5-10/mo I recommend HostGator (http://bit.ly/1UCHuf4) Free FTP Program: I recommend Cyberduck (http://cyberduck.io/) We're going to get a webhost & domain, open an FTP connection to it, upload our files to our webhost, and then we're done! -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Learning Web Development?

5:18 does the tilde still work in 2018? Or is it specific to each service ? Or has that URL parameter become obsolete ? Hardly ever see tilde in URL any more

4:45 Cgi-bin? How would you edit that ? Is that just a thing for PERL? Or a place to add scripts? How does it interact with the rest of the file system?
Keytron Quabius (1 month ago)
4:35 you can't connect any other way? Do you have to use a 3rd party ftp? Can this be done natively on win10 w/ git-bash? Can it be done in the browser? I understand your example of why you're using cyberduck because of propagation (it's kind of similar when using github pages) But can you just upload files via command line ? Idk I'm having trouble understanding the WHY and HOW of uploading files via ftp, instead of just doing in the normal way (given you're not using the control panel because it hasn't been propagated yet)

Hi! Quick question: I just registered with Hostgator and uploaded all my files using Filezilla. Whenever I tried the IPEXAMPLE/~USERNAME/ it gave me an error 404. Same thing with my actual domain. Is there something wrong? Or do I just need to wait?

Yes! But if you are a newbie and want to put your site online just for fun, you can try some free domains like .tk, .ml, .ga etc you can get these domains at http://www.freenom.com and for free hosting, I recommend https://infinityfree.net/ you can get a free domain (sitename.rf.gd) too at infinityfree. Enjoy :D

Thanks for the video, this was exactly what I was looking for. I have some questions tho, does the server get lag or some kind of delay, or any issue according to the number of websites I host? Is there a max number of web pages I can host with the baby plan?

Can you also post dynamic websites to HostGator?
LearnCode.academy (1 year ago)
Yes, for sure. Their shared and cloud hosting can support PHP and Ruby on Rails, their VPS and dedicated server can support Node.js, Java or any other backend technology as you essentially own a server all to yourself.

If I pay for a hosting plan on HostGator why do I need to use cyberduck.. please I need a reply cos am confused
Justin Hilton (1 year ago)
Seriously. He never really explained that part
Nandi Bear (1 year ago)
You don't have to but it will be a a lot easier. But you can just use the File Manager in your hostgator cpanel. However, if you do so there are file size restrictions for uploading. Also you can't transfer a folder (you know, full of files - which would make things quick and simple) you have to do one file at a time... Lastly, I recommend using SFTP (not plain old FTP).

if the ip/~username ends up with a 404 error, then you probably didn't change the nameserver on godaddy.

I Will use GitHub It is free and fast
Kobee R (4 months ago)
Github Pages is completely free but I believe you can only host static sites on there. You will still have to purchase a domain name and stuff (for example, if you want a custom URL other than <username>.github.io/<repo name>) but it will be hosted on Github for free. You can get 1 project site and unlimited user/organization sites. I think it's a good place to host stuff when you're starting/learning since you don't wanna spend money on a site that you might not even continue maintenance on.
Josue Garduño (5 months ago)
The free option is very limited. Only allows you to have a website

so i did everything as instructed in the video. but when i do the step of pasting the server/~username, it just takes me to a 404 error page. what might i be doing wrong, and how can i fix it? could it be because i used a sass preprocessor (prepros) app?

junhao su (1 year ago)
hi, I uploaded all my file to the server, and I followed your steps by entering the IP address with my name like what you say. But the hostgator just tells me "404 the page is not found." Do you know how to fix it? thanks!
Challan Jarrett (1 year ago)
Do you purchase the domains and services and host the sites for your clients? Or do you get them to purchase their own domains and servers?
