Edited for Grammar.

There are many ways to publish. see below :

1st way :

1. just create one virtual directory in your local server.
2. Open your project in Visual studio 2005
3. Goto Build --> Publish Web Site
4. Then it will open Target Window. Then click on browse button and then it will open publish website window to select Local IIS/FTP site/Remote Site
5. Here select Local IIS and choose your virtual directory and click on ok button
6. Then click on OK button.

After finish publishing. open FTP client software and login to your hosting's ftp account and just upload all published content from virtual directory's physical path.

you can also choose FTP path at the time of 5th point.

Thank you.
As an alternative, you can use a third party FTP Program.

I recommend ~Filezilla[^].

It is free and easy to use.
