Before you can setup your FTP software to upload to your website, you need to choose a web host. When you open an account with a web host, they will give you three pieces of information that you will need in order to use any ftp software. Usually this information is sent to you in a "Welcome" email message.
Step 1. Server Profile Name
This can be anything you want. It is just the name that will identify your website. If you have more than one website, you might want to give each website a profile name that will identify that website from the others. For example, if you have two websites and one is www.website1.com and the other is www.website2.com, you might give them the profile names of website1 and website2.
Step 2. Username and Password

Step 3. Basic Settings
You probably do not have a proxy server so leave this at the default setting.
