After building your website with Adobe Dreamweaver®, you can publish it to your hosting account. Publishing your website with Dreamweaver requires you to complete two tasks:

  • Define a Site - Tells Dreamweaver where to find the files for your website on your computer and how to connect to your hosting account.

  • Put Your Files - Moves your site's files from your computer to your hosting account, making them accessible to visitors going to your domain name in a Web browser.

1. From the Site menu, select New Site.
