The easiest way is to make a new folder on your server inside the root
folder for your site (use an FTP application for this) and then upload
your “beta” site into that folder. Freeway writes relative links by
default, so even the Home links will continue to work in such a
setting. When you’re sure it works, you can move everything out into
the main folder and delete the subfolder. So it would be something
like http://example.com/beta/index.html for testing purposes.

Freeway can upload a site in one of three ways - File Copy, FTP and mobile me.
Use File Copy to save the site to a folder on your computer.
Then use a ftp client application such as fetch, cyberduck, forklift or any other of your choice along with the ftp settings you use in freeway to connect to your site.
Once at the root folder (it maybe named public or web this will depend on your hosting server setup)
this is where the www.yoursitename.com/index is.
From within the FTP client, and each of the above applications has the ability, create a new folder - name this beta
Click on the new folder and use the FTP Client to put - upload the contents of your site folder that was saved to your computer from Freeway.
