Accessing my new website

Hi all.

I tried to access my website but got redirected to the Web Hosting for Students page saying I need FTP to upload my files. Does this mean going on to the Cyberduck thing?

Thanks.

Sean

It's 1: 25 a.m. here so I'm going to say good night, get some sleep and try again tomorrow, with fresh eyes. Good night.

I use https://filezilla-project.org/ Your hosting company should have some type of ftp to use. Depending on your hosting company it may have a public html folder for your index file to go into..

Check with your hosting company how to and where to upload your files..

Yes, CyberDuck would be an FTP client. Filezilla is another, and Transit is also quite popular. Any of them will allow you to FTP your files to a host who allows FTP access (most all do)

I've chosen Cyberduck. I've clicked Allow on the Unknown Host Key dialogue box. Currently, there's a message in the bottom left corner of the window saying it's authenticating as my user name. It's taking a few minutes at the moment. I'm just crossing my fingers as there's not much else I can do. Thanks. :)

If the window continues to say it's authenticating my user name, does this mean I've done something incorrectly, or is it something I've failed to do? I'll take any help on offer from anyone, with thanks.
