Publish Your Site Using Third-Party Programs

If you purchased website hosting with Bluehost, you can use third-party website publishing platforms (for example, Adobe Dreamweaver, Aloha Editor, etc.).

Note that it can be tricky to publish an add-on domain or subdomain. The easiest way is to create an FTP account associated with your addon domain or subdomain. See How to Create an FTP Account for more information. Also, see What Is FTP? An Introduction to File Transfer Protocol for recommended FTP applications.
