    • Name this file ads.txt.
    • The file should contain the ads.txt lines provided in your account here. For more information on how the lines should be formatted, see this article or reference the IAB spec, page 6. 
    • The file must be a .txt file extension. 
  3. Connect to your website using FTP. Open your FTP client and login to your domain’s FTP using your web host credentials. 
  4. Select the ads.txt file you created within the directory of your computer. Drag it to your website’s home directory.
    • The file must be on the root level of the domain.
    • The file must have Read permissions set to World. 
  5. Check the ads.txt domain is present. Open your internet browser and ensure the ads.txt is displaying by navigating to www.yourdomain/ads.txt.
