Now let's learn how to configure a website in WS_FTP.

5 Let's create a site now. Select the folder which we just created and then click create site.

6 Enter a name for the new site here.

7 Click next.

12 If you don't want to connect now, just deselect this option.

That's it! We are now connected to the remote server and the login details are saved for quicker connections in the future.
