Uploading Your Casino Gambling Template Using FTP Client

OK....we're to the final step of getting your website up and going by uploading the gambling template and site files to the server using an ftp client. In order to upload files to the server, you must have FTP access. GoDaddy offers a free web-based FTP client for basic sites, and there are numerous other free FTP services, such as FileZilla for Windows, Smart FTP for Windows, Fetch for Mac, and gFTP for Linux. There are also built in ftp clients in software such as Dreamweaver.

Regardless of the service you choose, the process is pretty much the universal. The GoDaddy FTP client is not designed to transfer large amounts of data. If your site is fairly large, or you anticipate growth, then it is probably best for you to utilize a standard FTP service. If your site is only a few pages and does not contain huge amounts of data, then the GoDaddy FTP client will facilitate file transfer just fine. There are also some other software options that provide FTP access, such as Dreamweaver, which can be used for file transfer to and from the hosting account as well .

I will provide the information you need for both using the GoDaddy Hosting Center Web Based FTP Client, as well as standard FTP clients.
