Publishing sites

Microsoft Expression Web supports several different publishing scenarios. You can work on your own computer and then publish your changes to a remote production web server; you can work on a remote staging web server and publish your changes to a remote production server; or you can work directly on a remote production web server. In each scenario, you can choose what protocol you want to use to move files between computers.
