How to upload a static website using Windows
Because of GoDaddy’s crazy prices and awful support I’ve decided to switch to Digital Ocean.
I found cPanel a lot easier than the system you’re using, but I’m trying to wrap my head around it.
So far I’ve purchased a domain from namecheap.com and set up the custom DNS so that it directs to ns1, ns2, and ns3.
I created a Droplet and added my SSH-key to it.
I’ve downloaded and installed Nginx on my Ubuntu 16.04 server and the Nginx screen showed up on the IP connected to my droplet.
But I’m stuck here.
How do I actually upload an index.html file to the server? I used Filezilla on GoDaddy but with the SSH keys now I’m completely lost. Where do I go from here?
