Your Web Site

how to upload and maintain your home page

To upload info to your account you will need to use a program that supports the FTP protocol. There are several FTP clients available free via the Internet (check out for one place to find such programs).

The basic procedure for you to upload your home page is for you to create the HTML files, graphics, etc. on your computer, then FTP them to the server. The only info you will need for your FTP program is your usercode and password. This is the same usercode and password which you use to access the account manager. Once you are connected, you can upload your files. You will want to name your "main" page either "index.html" or "index.htm". (When someone goes to "", the server will look for the file "index.html" or "index.htm" in your home directory. If it does not find either of those files, it will simply display a directory listing of your files.)

Once you have uploaded your web site, if you would like to make a change to any of the pages, simply edit the page on your computer and re-upload the page, over-writing the old one on the server.

Note that in the above examples, you should replace "" and "username" with your actual domain name and username...
