- Connect to your control panel.
- Choose 'file manager'.
- Go to your 'www' directory, as it is the default directory where your html
documents are stored.
- Choose 'upload files', and choose the files (up to 12) that you wish to upload.
- If you want to overwrite existing files with the same name, check 'existing files'
- Click upload, and the selected files will be uploaded to the selected directory.
* Note - depending on the size of the files selected, the upload process may take some time.

2. Using an ftp client. Ftp clients have many features, such as copy-paste, and are useful when manipulating larger number of files.

Recommended ftp clients: FileZilla - an excellent and FREE ftp client available from - Download the client version.
