Step 4- Uploading Web Pages


This seemingly simple process of copying files from your Personal computers hard disk to your server is quite irritating for the first time, but, easiest part later. Generally the servers provide FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access to upload files. Although, you can do this by your browser also, it is best advised that you download a good FTP software to do this. A good example is Cute FTP . Download the shareware version of this software and install it on your personal computer. You will require following information to configure most of the FTP programs:

  • Site Title: Give it any name you want, this is for your reference

  • FTP server address, username, password: These are provided by your server's webmaster

  • Folder or Directory name: There is a default directory where you will have to upload your index.html file. This is provided by the server's webmaster. Thereafter you can create any number of sub directories to upload your files to manage them and link them from index.shtml file.

  • For the rest, leave them as default.

Fill up the above information in the FTP software and connect to the server. Generally, FTP software divide the screen into two section, one section shows files on your PC, other on your server. You can both upload or download the files.

Here are some tips to make the job easier for you

  • Name your first file, or home page as index.html. Generally the servers will show this file when some types www.yourname.com in their browsers. Some servers also allow index.shtml, main.html, homepage.html etc. The file name extension can also be .htm, it hardly matters, so don't worry about it. Some also allow, .shtml, .cgi, .asp etc 

  • Name all your files in lower case, Linux and UNIX are a case sensitive operating systems, so Main.htm is not same as main.htm

  • Keep the files and directory names on the server same as that on your Hard Disk.
