Chapter 1. Exploring Contribute > Connecting and Browsing with Contribute

Connecting and Browsing with Contribute

Although establishing a connection to your Web site is a critical step with Contribute, it is quite transparent from the user's perspective when handled correctly. Contribute's connection key system provides all the information needed for users to transfer files between their systems and the Web site host computer. Best of all, the connection key is encrypted—FTP user names and passwords are well hidden from unauthorized eyes.

Connection keys are created by the administrator, as you'll learn in Lesson 14. When the connection key is fashioned, a password is selected. The Contribute user needs both the connection key file and the password to establish a connection.
