  • Set the Nameservers of your new domain in your GoDaddy Control Panel to point to your Hosting Account
  • Add an additional domain as an "addon" domain in your Host's Control Panel

Section 4: Getting your Website Live

In this lecture, we learn how to upload our website files to our domain via FTP. We touch on using the following FTP clients:

Flow – FTP + SFTP

Flow is an award-winning, beautiful, fast and reliable FTP + SFTP client.

Cyberduck – FTP

Cyberduck is a full-fledged FTP, SFTP & WebDAV. If you’re looking to do some more heavy lifting when it comes to web hosting & file transfers, etc. Look into Cyberduck, for sure.

The most innovative and incredible all-in-one editor for your web code. I love Coda 2, and I use it for all of my coding needs. It also has a brilliant baked-in FTP client. If you’d rather have everything in one place, rather than switching back and forth between apps — go with Coda 2.

    Completely defined with clear words.

    Sales Pitch

    It seemed to me, Brad was more interested in pointing us at his affiliate programs.

    • David Mackay

    Great guidance for website beginners

    Easy instructions, great examples and good flow of lectures.

    • Kim Vanderlaan

    Really good course for beginners. I'll definitely revisit this when I'm putting it into practice. Building a blog in Wordpress in under 5 minutes was a complete waste of time though. It was rushed for the sake of being under 5 minutes and I didn't take in much.

    • Lindsay Risk

    I could do this!

    Brad demystified the whole process of DNS, Hosting and publishing. I feel like I can really do this now. Thanks! this course was really helpful!
