  1. If the Connection Wizard window is not already displayed, click on the Connection Wizard icon.

  2. Type in a name for your connection. A suggestion would be the name of your web site, for instance.

  3. Enter the host name. This would be something like ftp.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com would be your actual domain name.
