Step 1: Build
Build your website in html

Step 2: Upload
  • Once you have set up your website, you can upload it using a method called FTP or File Transfer Protocol, which is a method of moving files from your computer to a server so the files can be visible on the internet.
  • Your website’s FTP address will be ftp://yourusername@mysite.mweb.co.za and use your MWEB password.
  • You can access the FTP section using Internet Explorer or an FTP Client, many of which are available for download on the internet.
  • If HTML is too daunting there are easier ways to publish online than by designing and coding your site from scratch.
  • These options are freely available for MWEB members.
