How Do I Publish My Site with FrontPage?
Before publishing your site with FrontPage, you must make sure the following 2 items are true:
1. Your DNS (name servers) MUST be resolved with your registrar before you can use the publish feature in FrontPage.
2. Make sure your FrontPage extensions are ON (installed) on your account first. You can do this through your cPanel.
To use the publishing feature in FrontPage follow these steps:
1. While in the FrontPage interface, open the web site you want to publish.
2. Select the PUBLISH WEB option from the File menu in FrontPage and provide the prompt with your URL (http://www.yourdomain.com).
3. The next prompt will ask you for your USERNAME and PASSWORD. These are the same log-in details you use to access your cPanel.
4. FrontPage will then give you the ability to view the files on your local PC in one window pane while viewing the files on the remote (web host) server, depending on the version of FrontPage you are using.
You may want to set your options to publish all of your web pages, only changed web pages and/or include sub-webs. These options will be available in different locations depending on the version of FrontPage you are using. (version 2002 or higher is recommended)
Either way, you can click the PUBLISH button when you are ready to send your web site to the server.
Note: If you are using the FrontPage publish feature (as described above) to upload your files to the server, do NOT use FTP as well. Using FTP can corrupt your FrontPage extensions.
If you choose to use FTP with FrontPage, you should turn OFF (uninstall) the Frontpage extensions via your cPanel – but you will not be able to use all of FrontPage’s features.
