Instructions on using FTP to add/remove files on your website.
With File Transfer
Protocol (FTP) you can easily send/update your files (web pages, images,
sounds, etc.) over the internet. To
do this you will need an FTP Client Software such as WS-FTP or Cute FTP.
To utilize your
space you must first have it set up by our webmaster.
Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and request that your space be activated.
When you click on Connect, the Session Profile window will show up,
then enter the following:
On Profile Name:
On Host Name:
On Host Type: Auto
On User ID: Your
On Password: Your
Click on OK and it
should log into your webspace.
A two-window screen will open, on the left hand side it will list
as local system. The local
system is your computer. The
right hand window will be named the remote system.
This is our web server. Your
will see two arrows in the middle of the two screens, one pointing to the
right the other pointing to the left.
In simple terms just highlight a file in either window and click
the arrow to move the file to the system you want it to be on.
Step #3: When you are finished transferring files simply click exit.
To have your webspace be visible by others you will need to have
one the files named either index.htm or index.html.
Make sure you make it one or the other.
If you have both files listed and one ends in htm and the other in
html your site may not be visible.
Make certain that all of your files are uploaded as well as the
index file. If you do not
upload all of your pertinent files your site may not work properly.
