After building your website with Adobe Dreamweaver®, you can publish it to your hosting account.

Publishing your website with Dreamweaver CS6 requires you to complete two tasks:

  1. Define a Site — Tells Dreamweaver where to find the files for your website on your computer and how to connect to your hosting account.
  2. Put Your Files — Moves your site’s files from your computer to your hosting account, making them accessible to visitors going to your domain name in a Web browser.

To find information about any of these settings, see FTP: How to upload files.
