Connect to a server by using FTP
If the server that hosts your website supports FTP (File Transfer Protocol), you can publish your website to the server by using the FTP features in Microsoft Expression Web.
Expression Web enables you to use either passive FTP or normal FTP. Some network configurations will only work with passive FTP mode turned on, while others will only work with passive FTP mode turned off. Most network configurations will support both modes. The passive FTP mode is considered more secure.
To connect to an FTP host
At the bottom of the Web Site view, click Remote Web Site.
At the top of the view, click Remote Web Site Properties.
In the Remote Web Site Properties dialog box, on the Remote Web Site tab, select FTP.
In the Remote Web site location box, type the Internet address of the FTP host that you want to publish folders and files to—for example, example.com—or click Browse to locate the site.
In the FTP directory box, enter the path to the directory of your website.
In the Connect to dialog box, to save your password, select Remember my password.
Enter your user name and password, and click OK.
