  3. 3. Uploading pagesUntil now, only you have had the satisfaction of viewing yourpages. Now it is time for the rest of the world to see yourmasterpieces.Is the world ready for that?The world is ready - you soon will be too. To get your websiteon the internet, you just need some server space and a freeFTP program.If you have Internet access, you might already have some free serverspace for your website. Your server space will then probably be calledsomething like http://home.provider.com/~usernumber. But youmight need to activate it first. Read more about this in the papers fromyour Internet provider or on their support pages.October 15, 2007 C. E. II * Adnan El-Haj 3
  4. 4. Another option is to get some free server space on the Internet.In the same way that you set up an e-mail account (at forexample Hotmail), you can register for free server space onthe Internet.Several companies offer such a service - among them Angelfire(click "Sign Up" and choose the free membership) - it will onlytake a couple of minutes to register.To have access to the server, you need to know the "Host Name"(For example, ftp.angelfire.com) and have your username andpassword ready.October 15, 2007 C.

  5. 5. Is that all I need?To access the server and upload your pages, you also need anFTP program. FTP is short for File Transfer Protocol.A FTP program is used to connect two computers over theInternet so that you can transfer files from your computer toanother computer (the server). You might not have such aprogram yet, but fortunately, this can be downloaded for free.There are many different FTP programs. One of the better isFileZilla, which is entirely free. So now you can downloadFileZilla at filezilla.sourceforge.net.October 15, 2007 C. E. II * Adnan El-Haj 5
  6. 6. And how do I upload the pages?Described below is how you upload your pages to a free accountat Angelfire with FileZilla. But the procedure is, more or less,the same for all providers and FTP programs.Open the FTP program while connected to the Internet.Insert "Host Name" ("ftp.angelfire.com" under "Address"),username (under "User") and password (under "Password")and click "Connect".You should now have access to the server.In one side of the program you can see the contents of yourcomputer ("Local Site"), and in the other side, you can see thecontent of the server ("Remote Site"):October 15, 2007 C.

  7. 7. Find your HTML documents and images on your computer (onthe "Local site") and transfer them to the server (the "Remotesite") by double clicking on them.Now the whole world can see them! (For example, at the addresshttp://www.angelfire.com/folk/htmlnet/page1.htm).Name one of the pages "index.htm" (or "index.html") and it willautomatically become the start page. i.e. if you typehttp://www.angelfire.com/folk/htmlnet (without any filename)you will actually openhttp://www.angelfire.com/folk/htmlnet/index.htm.October 15, 2007 C.

  8. 8. In the long run, it might be a good idea to purchase your owndomain (for example: www.your-name.comor www.your-name.net)and avoid the long and complicated addresses you are beingassigned by your Internet provider or from providers of freeserver space.You can find and purchase domains at for example Speednamesor NetworkSolutions.October 15, 2007 C.
