Hi there! In this video, you’ll learn how to upload website files to your hosting account using the cPanel File Manager. With your GoDaddy hosting account set up, you’re now ready to upload your website files. On your account page, to the right of Web Hosting, click Manage [click]. On the Hosting Accounts page, locate the domain that you’re uploading website files for and click Manage [click]. In the cPanel dashboard, under Files, click File Manager [click]. In the File Manager Directory Selection dialog box, the Web Root directory is selected by default. cPanel uses the public html folder as the Web Root directory for your primary domain name’s website. The files you put in the web root directory are what load when visitors access your domain name in a web browser. To access the File Manager for this directory, click Go [click]. The File Manager in cPanel allows you to upload only one file at a time. If you need to upload several files at once, for example your whole website, we recommend that you use a File Transfer Protocol, or FTP client. Alternatively, you can put all of your website’s files into a single compressed file referred to as a zip file. You can then upload the zip file and extract its contents inside the File Manager root directory. Let’s continue using the cPanel File Manager and upload the website’s files using a zip file. Once you’ve zipped up your website’s files, In the cPanel File Manager, select the public_html folder [click], click Choose File and browse to locate the zip file on your computer. Select the file and click Open [click]. A dialogue displaying the status of your upload will run on screen. When you upload is complete, click the Back to… link in the middle of the screen. The uploaded zip file displays here. To extract the files into this folder, select the zip file and click Extract [click]. In the Extract Verification dialog box, click Extract Files [click]. A list of the files that were extracted into the Web Root directory folder will display. Click Close to return to the Web Root directory folder [click]. The contents of the zip file are now visible in the public html folder, or the web root directory for your primary domain name’s website. That’s it! Now that you’ve upload your website files, open a web browser and navigate to your domain to see what visitors will see.

    Guys, the Cpanel plesk admin will appear once you pay for a hosting service, probably you just bought the domain and not the hosting service, buy your own domain then after select the options to buy the hosting, then the Plesk will show on the options.
