Editing my website using FTP and HTML Editors

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hello!

My website is a template via my webhosting company. Is it necessary to use an FTP? I have such a difficult time making changes to my site despite how small those changes are (ie: text, images). Would an FTP facilitate such changes? Or is that only solution if I'm using an HTML editor? Are HTML editors easily understood for newbies?

Thanks.

I have read your problem i don't know the proper answer but i can still think i can help you to find the solution of this problem. In order to use FTP, you need a FTP client, such as SmartFTP, FileZilla, Cute FTP…, just login with the FTP account which is given to you and you can upload/download file to/from your host. With HTML editor, I recommend you to use Adobe Dreamweaver, it's easy to use for newbie.

Hope my solution will help you to create a website by yourself. Good luck!!!

Hello Brainlara.

If  I understand your question correctly, you want to directly edit your website from your webhosting company's web server.  I am also assuming you have knowledge of HTML, javascript, php/asp and that you know what you are doing. To do that, you need some way to retrieve the source code from your web server as well as upload revised source codes.  FTP is one of the ways you can do those file transfers.  You'll need to contact your webhosting company to get the server address, the login name and password and have them modify access rights to those folders.  To edit the source code of your files you need an HTML editor or at least a text editor.  Some text editors have FTP integrated so that editing and file transfers are done seamlessly. The other guy already suggested FTP clients and editors.  You can start with those.

Hope this helps.
