Publishing on the Web: Putting Files on the Server
Last updated Oct 17, 2003.
By Meryl Evans
Most of us work offsite to create a Web site before testing it online. Before taking the site for an online test ride, however, you'll want to have a server in place to which you can upload the files. Also, you'll need to give the newborn site a name—a domain name, which will be the site's URL.
The site can be managed either by a lone person or a team; the server can be either in the same office building or miles away. But the files won't appear on the server without help—and that's where file transfer protocols play a role.
