Using your free webspace
Step Two : uploading files to the webspace using CuteFTP 6.
Installing CuteFTP Version 6
You will see a window like the one below asking you to name the 'FTP Site'. Call this "My Web and Mail", and then click Next ;
You then have to enter your 'FTP Host Address'. This is where your webspace is on the internet. Enter "websites.webandmail.co.uk" and then click Next ;
Next you will be asked to enter your login details. For 'username', enter your Web and Mail username. However the password here is NOT the normal password that you use to access your webmail or login. Make sure that you enter the password you created when you turned on your webspace in Step One. Now click Next ;
You will be asked for your 'Default Local Folder' (this means "where on your computer are the files that make up your website?") and 'Default Remote Folder' (this means, "where is the your webspace where the files need to go?"). For the time being ignore this (it is easier to set it later on once you understand better how CuteFTP works) so just click Next ;
The next window requires no action - just click Finish to proceed.
Using CuteFTP to upload files
The first time you open CuteFTP the 'Site Manager' window should open automatically. If it doesn't then you need to open it by clicking the icon in the top left corner.
Look at the image below of the 'Site Manager Window'. We have circled the following important points:
Now that you are logged into your webspace, you can upload your files. CuteFTP allows you to "drag and drop" files in the same way that you do in Windows. The left hand panel contains the files on your computer ('local' files) and the right panel contains the files in the Web and Mail webspace ('remote' files). Click on the file(s) you want to move and drag and drop in the desired location.
How do I see the files I upload?You will need to go to this web address :
http://www. (your 'Webspace Directory' name) .webandmail.co.uk
For example :
A user has named their 'Webspace Directory' mysite and they upload a page called home.htm. This can be seen online at
