FTP Settings and Website Information

FTP Software

To upload files to your website, you need an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program such as one of the following:

FTP Settings / website info

FTP Tips / Suggestions

Default documents

Generally speaking, there should be a "default document" (see above) within any directory structure in your site that has content. This "default document" is the "main" file for any given directory and normally contains information about that section of the site and links to various files within that section.

If someone types in http://www.example.com/myvacation/ (without specifying a file in the "myvacation" directory), the default document (if it exists) is the file that will be displayed--otherwise, an error message is displayed.

If you name your default document "default.htm" and place it in the main directory of your site, then the following two addresses would display the same content:
http://www.example.com/
http://www.example.com/default.htm
Likewise, the following two URLs are equivalent to each other:
http://www.example.com/somesubdirectory/
http://www.example.com/somesubdirectory/default.htm

Because default documents are displayed automatically by the web server when a visitor does not specify a specific file name, you should never specify the default document's file name in any of your code.

You should never have multiple default documents in the same directory (e.g. "index.html" AND "default.htm" at the same time).

You can add any file name to the existing default document list by editing or creating the "web.config" file in the root (top-most) directory in your website. The following example "web.config" file adds "index.asp" to the existing list of default documents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <defaultDocument> <files> <add value="index.asp" /> </files> </defaultDocument> </system.webServer> </configuration>
