Can i use my own hosting site while using Joomla to create my website? Meaning I would create the website on Joomla but use another hosting website. So is there a way I can link the two using FTP server?
Yes you can. If your web host supports joomla, you can upload your joomla website using ftp or fantastico. This way, it’s easy for you to set up your website. You can edit it through your joomla admin account or directly to your web host. I’m using hostgator for my joomla site. First, I download the joomla 1.5 installer, then upload it to my web host using the fantastico installer. It takes only for a few minutes.
Then edit my site using the joomla admin panel. If some files need to be uploaded, moved, edited, or deleted I used my web host account to do it. Hostgator has a user-friendly cpanel, that’s why it’s easy for me to do different tasks.
