If you have installed WordPress then you will see some folders along with the files.

If you haven’t installed WordPress or even uploaded anything yet on your site then it looks empty.

  • Click on the “➕ Folder” button.
  • Name your folder. For e.g. ‘Test’
  • Hit on the “Create New Folder” button.
Create New Folder
  • Great, your folder is created.

STEP 3 – Upload HTML/PHP File

Open the folder where you want to upload your file mainly “public_html” but as we already have many files in that directory, we created a new ‘test’ folder to upload that Html file and it looks like “public_html/test”.

  • Click on the “UPLOAD” button.
Click on Upload Button
  • You will be redirected to a new page.
  • Now, Click on “Select File”.
    • Or, drag your file directly.
Click on Select File
  • Wait until the upload gets done.
  • Then, click on the “Go Back” button.
  • Done! It’s time to check.

As you know, we created a TEST folder and then uploaded our HTML file named “hello-world”.

So, here it is…

Upload Done
