WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I have built a new website at GoDaddy and need to get it hosted and on-line with Webfaction. I already have a website hosted by Webfaction and understand I can host this new one there as well. I have absolutely no idea how to do this. Can someone please help? I am illiterate at this stuff so make it simple without terminology I might not understand please. Thanks Dan

You first need to point your new domain to our servers. Please take a look at our Pointing Your Domain to WebFaction's servers article.

You need to add your domain (and any other subdomain you want to host) to our control panel at and also create an application of the appropriate type.

This will create a new directory in the server's filesystem, at /home/your-username/webapps/application-name, where you need to upload your code. See our Accessing Your Data article on how to upload them with an FTP or an SFTP client.

Finally, you need to create a website entry where you will link your domain with the app. We have extensive documentation, along with some examples at our Websites article, but if you have further questions, please do comment them on this answer.
