Next select the first drop down menu, asking how you would like to connect to your remote server. Choose "FTP." Next, enter your hostname or FTP address, which is ftp.domainit.com. Select the the next field, which is the folder on the server where you want to store your files. You need to enter "/yourdomain.com/html," substituting your actual domain name sans "www." Under that field enter "yourdomain.com", for your FTP login, also substituting "yourdomain.com" for your actual domain name. Next enter your password, and either test your connection or click next.
Once you have clicked next, Dreamweaver will ask you if you would like to enable checking in and checking out files. This option is your choice. Click next after selecting an option.
Finally, you are ready to connect to your website. Click done.
To connect to your website, click on the remote host connection icon in the "Files" pane. If your "Files" pane is not open, you can open it by going up to the "Window" drop-down menu, and selecting "Files," or by pressing F8 on your keyboard.
