HTML authoring and content publishing software usually supports web-publishing via FTP. Because DriveHQ offers both Static Web Hosting service and FTP Hosting service, our service is compatible with most HTML/web authoring software and content publishing software.
Static Web Hosting can be used to host small business websites, personal websites, and publish images and videos with static links. With DriveHQ's service, it is extremely easy. You just need to:
(1) Order a business / personal plan;
(2) Click Enable your website if it has not been enabled already.

Website URL: https://YOUR_DRIVEHQ_USERNAME.firstcloudit.com/
