"publish" the site by putting all of the files (HTML, Graphic, Java
files) on the web server that will host your site. You can publish your
site frequently while you are constructing your site.
Some editor programs have the ability to publish your pages. In
addition, there are free FTP program that many people use with
non-commercial sites. See your system administrator of that server for
help in publishing your site.
