    If you are uploading a web page, it should go to "public_html" directory.

    If you are using control panel you can upload directly from the folder without using ftp.

    if there is no "public_html", you can upload your files to "www".
    or on cpanel you can simply use the HTML/java uploader.
    get some screenshots so we can help you better.
    - what folders are there when u ftp?
    - give us a screenshot of your cpanel
    - does the website contain anything now?

    without wax,

    This will definitely help.


    I also recommend CoreFTP lite. Great free program and newbie friendly, IMO.

    This is all very good. But if you have the permissions then you can go to "My computer", in the address bar at the top, type "ftp://siteaname.com", a dialog box will open and will ask for the user name and password. Provide them and after a few seconds you will be looking at your site where it is placed on your hosting. Browse for the pages that you want to change or upload.
