I Am Using Too Much Bandwidth! Is There Anyway For Me To Make It Less?

Yes, in most cases. First try to optimize the graphics on your website. Many GIFs look just as good with fewer colors, and many JPEGs look just as good with higher compression. NetMechanic offers a free online image optimizer. You should also analyze the HTML of your site. Make sure you're using relative paths so that images are not downloaded more than one time. When linking to other pages, use relative paths and not absolute links. Remove any extra spacing, too. Also, make sure your host has mod_gzip installed. This can save you a lot of bandwidth. Remember, optimizing your page will not only conserve bandwidth but will also improve your visitors' experience.

How do I upload my site?

When your hosting account was created, you were provided with an FTP account. Using software such as CuteFTP or WS_FTP, you can log into your host. Then, using the program like a normal windows program, you drag and drop files onto your Web host's server. These files become live online instantaneously. There are other ways to upload your site, including Secure Shell (SSH) or uploading files through your browser.
