How to install my website?
You've created your website locally on your computer and you'd like to publish it in the Web. You need to copy it to our servers via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). This kind of data transmission is done by software called FTP client.

FTP Server: 720Plan.ovh.net (or ftp.yourdomain.com)

You've logged into your FTP account. Now, you may see all your FTP content and folders. You need to double-click WWW folder and transfer your data there. Don't forget to change the name of your website to index.html and remove the previous file index.html provided by OVH.
There is a multiplicity of FTP clients, that is why we are unable to describe the details of their working. Usually, they have two windows, one representing your local computer, the other - your FTP account. It's usually sufficient to draw the files to the other window to transfer them, or click "Send" button.
