I thought most of the freebie hosts will have like netFTP to make it easy for people. I hade a decent free host a while back that had this (along with lots of other great features) IIRC it was tekcities. They had this feature, along with a n00b tute.

If this is a friend that's hosting it for you: FTP. You can connect to an FTP using Internet Explorer; ask your friend what address its at.

If this is a professional site (Geocities, Angelfire, etc.): They typically either use FTP, or have a file manager on their site. You know how you can upload attachments in emails in Hotmal/Yahoo and the like? Well, the way you upload data to their site works much in the same way.

If you have an option use sFTP instead of FTP or (this might be too much) FTP over SSH. Otherwise your cerdentials will be passed in the clear (as plain text) so anyone between you and the host could grab it and cause trouble.

If you are a Windows user, which I am assuming you are since you mentioned notepad, WinSCP is a freeware sFTP client.

If you're not using an FTP client, like WFTP or CuteFTP or (and I recommend this one) SmartFTP, then simply use Internet Explorer and use the following format:

ftp://username:password@domain.com

That should set you straight. :)

And I reccomend Bravenet since it is really simple. The banner on top gets to be annoying so I'd check Zal91's first, but if you find it too complicated try Bravenet.

Ok, maybe you need alil more help...read all the above find a host...

make sure you rename that html file to index.html so its displayed by default when someone goes to the URL.

Anything else you need?
