Hour 4. Publishing Your HTML Pages > Transferring Pages to a Web Server

Transferring Pages to a Web Server

When a Web server computer sends Web pages to people through the Internet, it uses an information exchange standard called Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). To upload a page to your Web site, however, you usually need software that uses an older communications standard called File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

File Transfer Protocol is the standard that your file transfer software must adhere to when sending files to a Web server. The server then sends those files out to anyone who asks for them using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol.
