How to upload a file to your website using a ftp client – Filezilla

So you’ve got yourself that domain you’ve always wanted, you got a nice hosting plan at www.thcservers.com now it is time you get your website working.
The first thing you will have to do is to upload files to your website. And this is how you do it using one of the most popular ones – Filezilla.
First things first: download the client
https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client
After the succesful install you will have to do some preliminary steps:
– know the name of the FTP server for your website. For example, your host may tell you that your FTP hostname is “ftp.example.com”.
– your username or login username for your FTP account.
– your password for this FTP account.
– the specific directory where you need to have your files so that they can be seen by a web browser visiting your site. For example, your host may tell you to place the files in a subdirectory called “www” or “public_html” or even the default directory that you see when you log into your FTP site.

So how do you upload or publish a file to your Web Server step by step:
We will assume that you wish to upload a file called “test.php”. When you see “test.php” mentioned, you can substitute that name with the name of the file you wish to upload. FileZilla does not restrict you to uploading only files of that name. You can upload images (eg, GIF, JPG, PNG, etc), HTML files, video clips, music files (eg MP3 files, WAV files, MIDI files), PHP scripts, Perl scripts, etc.
1. You must click the “File” menu followed by the “Site Manager” item on that menu. A dialog box will appear.

2. Click the “New Site” button on that dialog box. This will create a new item under “My Sites” called “New FTP site”. Rename “New FTP site” to the name of your site if you wish. We used “TestSite” in this tutorial. This name can be anything you wish – it is not required for accessing your site but it will probably make your life easier if you change the name to that of your site rather than “New FTP site”.

3. On the tab “General”, enter the name of your FTP server in the “Host” input box. If your web host told you that your FTP hostname is “ftp.example.com”, enter “ftp.example.com” into the space provided.

4. Do not modify the “Port” and the “Servertype” entry boxes. Select “Normal” from the drop down list box for “Logontype”. This will enable the “User” and “Password” boxes for the next step.
5. Now you must enter your user id or your login name (or whatever your web host calls it) into the “User” input box. Also enter your password into the “Password” input box. Note that this information is automatically saved onto your computer and will be re-used the next time you run FileZilla, so you do not have to re-enter them again. (It means that you should not use FileZilla in this way on public computers that others may have access to.)
https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/437906/9a332896a576eef848b68d1b437c065b
6. You will click the “Connect” button. FileZilla will proceed to log you into your server. If it is successful, you will see a list of directories of your website’s account in the right hand side of the FileZilla window. On the left hand side of the FileZilla window shows the directories and files on your own computer.
https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/437925/1ce7879e0d644758542625788e574bfb
7. Your web host might tell you to only upload in a specific subdirectory on the web server, such as in the “www” or “public_html” directory; you will have to change to that directory by doubleclicking its name in the folder portion of the right window pane (the “Remote Site” window pane). FileZilla will open that folder and show you its contents in the files portion of the Remote Site window pane.
https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/437933/4f6bf7430ef56f576b20f5a88b628c90
8. Locate the file that you wish to upload in the left window pane (the “Local Site” pane) – in this case “Test.php”. Once you have located the file you wish to upload, (for us “Test.php”), doubleclick it to upload it to your website. Alternatively, you can drag that file from the left window pane to the right window pane. The file will be uploaded to the folder that is currently open on the right window pane. Be careful that you have changed to the directory you want before dragging the file there.
9. You should be able to see the upload progress in the bottommost window pane in FileZilla. When the upload has completed, you can disconnect from your website. Do this by clicking the “Server” menu followed by the “Disconnect” item.

And that’s it! You have uploaded a file to your website using FileZilla ftp client.

SSD Hosting And Bitcoin

Is your website taking too long to load? Have you ever heard about SSD hosting? It can make your web pages load 20% faster.

How about Bitcoin? It is a brand new, revolutionary online payment method that is guaranteed to knock your socks off.

So behold, what we about to reveal to you are two of the most modern and convenient tools on the web right now. So stay tuned.

What is SSD HOSTING?

To have a website, the most basic thing you need is disk space and bandwidth. Most hosting servers use a hard disk drive (HDD) for file storage. But in recent years, web hosting companies started using SSD as their primary unit. Let’s see the difference between an HDD and SSD.

HDD Explained

HDD stands for hard disk drive. A hard disk drive is a hard disk made of nonmagnetic material which is coated with a thin layer of magnetic material. This coating is responsible for storing its data. The disc rotates at a high speed and a magnetic head mounted on a movable arm is used to read and write the data. This whole “spinning process” leads to a delayed response time and a humming noise on the computer. Fortunately, HDD can be used for many years without any problems and has been the most used drive till today.

SSD Explained

SSD stands for solid state drive. Unlike the HDD , SSD has no moving parts, and data is stored in interconnected flash memory chips . As there are no moving parts involved in the reading or writing of data, the SSD has better transfer speed and better performance than HDD. Moreover, the chance of data loss for some small misuse is dramatically reduced. SSD’s can operate at high and low temperatures and have the ability to withstand extreme shock and strength. Thus, your data is extremely secure with SSD.

Why You Need SSD Hosting

In this day and age, a fast loading website is crucial to a better user experience. No one likes to wait for a web page to load. Thus, even a page with a 1- second delay may be enough to lose potential customers by 7%. Also, don’t forget that page load time is obviously an important factor in your website’s ability to rank on Google and other search engines.

There are many factors that affect page load time. The correct hosting for your businesses website just happens to be one of them. Most web hosting providers are using various technologies to increase their hosting speed. Using SSDs is one such method. Iincreases the page loading speed and brings to its customers an overall better web hosting environment.

3 Simple Reasons Why SSD is Better Than HDD

1. Loads your website faster
2. Better website performance
3. Environmentally friendly

Bitcoin

Have you ever heard of the virtual currency called Bitcoin? It is one of the most popular ways nowadays to make payments over the internet without involving financial institutions in the transaction. It can be used by both individual users and businesses. Interestingly, no one controls Bitcoin and anyone can join this system. This currency represents a simple and safe alternative to buying goods and contracting services online (especially when we are dealing with international companies). With Bitcoin, it’s safety first. Another good thing about it is that you won’t suffer with exchange rates, since it always works with actual values. It truly is a revolutionary way of paying for things online, and luckily for you, we accept Bitcoin as payment too.

domain

Why should you choose a domain.xyz ?

The Top Level Domain xyz is gaining more and more users. Why? Until now, most websites were defined by the domain names as .video, .taxi, .design and so on.

But, what happens when you have a more generic Company? Well, now you can use .xyz! From its launch to this very day, this TLD has earned its fame by registering a high number of domains, from various geographical locations and business types.

Good for hobbies, great for business!

Seeing that the .com websites are in great numbers, this TLD should be seen as a fresh alternative. Can’t decide on a TLD? Google already has abc.xyz! From small to large Corporations, craft projects or portfolios, many are leaning to a domain.xyz .

Want to register your .xyz domain now? You can do it here at THCServers.com

How does color impact your viewers?

How our website is firstly percieved by your visitors has a lot to do with shades and pigments.  In this post we decided to talk a little about color psychology.

Color has to be adequately set to match the message you want to send. Cool colors like blue and greed give a sense of security and trust – that is why they are so often used as backgrounds in websites. As, on the other hand, warm colors like red, yellow and orange are more dynamic and aggressive, thus being best used for emphasis and not for background.

Here is a list of colors to help you with choosing the right one for your website:

Red – associated with wormth, stop, aggression, boldness, fire

Orange – associated with wormth, autumnal

Yellow – associated with joy, the Sun

Brown – associated with wormth, autumn and sometimes messiness

Green – associated with freshness, novelty

Blue – associated with water, peace and tranquility

Mauve – associated with luxury, royalty

Black – associated with night, mystery and privacy

Grey – associated with rain, wisdom

White – associated with innocence, purity and cleanness

(Powell T.A.)

It is widely known that worm colors evoke feelings of joy, whilst cool colors reflect a sense of calm and tranquility.

So, when designing your website, keep in mind all of the above and choose your website color to match the message you want to send!

 

 

 

 

 

What Is The Difference Between A Registry, Registrar And Registrant?

There are three different roles that participate in the domain name registration process: The registry, registrar, and registrant.

Registry: A domain name registry is an organization that manages top-level domain names. They create domain name extensions, set the rules for that domain name, and work with registrars to sell domain names to the public.

Registrar: The registrar is an accredited organization, like THCServers, who sells domain names to the public. Some of them have the ability to sell top-level domain names (TLDs) like .com, .net, and .org or country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs) such as .us, .ca, and .eu.

Registrant: A registrant is the person or company who registers a domain name. Registrants can manage their domain name’s settings through their registrar. When changes are made to the domain, their registrar will send the information to the registry to be updated and saved in the registry’s database. For example right after you register a domain with us, you will become a registrant.
