Publish your Site using 3rd Party Programs

Programs such as Dreamweaver, WordPress Direct, Excite, and XSite work well for publishing to your primary domain name, but it can be tricky to publish to an addon or subdomain name.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to create an FTP account which is associated with your addon domain:

  1. Log in to your HostMonster Control Panel
  2. Click the FTP Accounts tool.
  3. Fill out the form at the top of the page to create a new FTP account
  4. Ensure that the new FTP account points to the root folder of your addon domain
  5. Use the corresponding password and username (the username resembles an email address, i.e. [email protected])
  6. When you are ready to publish, use the email-like username and password. Your files will upload to the correct website

Managing files and sites

Please consult the help documents and support site for the program you are using.
