    upload to/onto

    1. Please uploaded it onto the website on 5 Feb.
    2. Please uploaded it to the website on 5 Feb.

    Are they both the same?

    Re: upload to/onto

    Is "Please" someone's name? If not, both sentences are wrong so I suppose in that regard they're the same.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Use either one, but only with my suggested revisions.

    Maybo, did you mean to write that in past tense?

    to is better here. There's no need to use onto.

    upload to ...
    download from ...
