Hi,

You have to host your website with any of the hosting providers in the world to make it as public in the internet . Before choosing a good hosting provider, you should check the following factors :

1. Company existence

2. Customer support

In my experience, http://www.9cubehosting.com/cheap_hosting/ provides good service and customer support.

Why dont you zip the folder, upload the zipped file and then unzip it on the server. It takes less than 5 minutes to unzip even a very lage file on cPanel.

Be careful the kinds of file you upload via filemanager from your cpanel. Read the TOS very well as many webhosting company have strict rule on the use of their file manager for upload.

Eventhough their terms may read UNLIMITED STORAGE, they frawn at people taking advantage of that to store all kinds of stuff in their server. Some will require you to contract their dedicated storage unit.

I know a lot of people that saved all sorts of files on their server through this method, because they have unlimited storage space and got their accounts suspended without notice.

But that is an easy way of uploading your site

You transfer the files from your computer to your web host. this you can do by either using the cPanel of your hosting program (under "file manager") and manually browse to your files and upload to your web host (as you would if you were attaching a document in email) or you use an FTP program to do so (advantage here is that you can transfer files in bulk,unlike manual upload via cPanel).

good luck!
