1.2.1 Using FTP

You will need to refer to the account information email that you received from us throughout this manual.  In the body of the email, you will find following information:

1. ACCOUNT INFORMATION+++++++++++++++++

DOMAIN NAME...............:[yourdomain].com*
USER NAME.................:[username]
Temporary ADDRESS.........:
DEFAULT EMAIL.............:[username]@[yourdomain]

*Depending on your domain, you may have [yourdomain].net, .org, or any of the non-US top level domains or extensions.

Host Name/Address: (for linux)
Host Name/Address: (for Win 2003)
Host Type: Automatic Detect
User ID: [username]
Password: [password]

Your website needs to be uploaded to the following directory:

/public_html on Linux & /httpdocs on Windows Server

If you can't bring up your site after you have uploaded your pages, please make sure you have uploaded to your web directory and deleted the default index.html file placed there automatically while creating your account.

Now Let's begin (assuming that you are already connected to the Internet.)

1) Start your FTP program. We will use WS_FTP for the purposes of this manual.

2) In "Profile Name", type in whatever you want.

3) In "Host Name", type in [yourdomain].com or [Temporary Address]


IMPORTANT[yourdomain].com vs [Temporary Address]
If it has only been three or four days since you received the account information email, then you should use [Temporary Address]. If it has been more than that, you should use [yourdomain].com.  After your domain name is active on the Internet, you should always use [yourdomain].com.


4) In "User ID", type in [username].

5) In "Password", type in [passwd]

6) Under "Initial Directories" you will find two boxes. In "Remote Host", type in "/www/[username].

7) In "Local PC", type in the path where your web site is stored on your local PC.

8) Select "OK"

9) You will now be connected to your account on our server. This will connect you to the webserver, where you will connect directly to the root ("home") directory of your account. WS_FTP will display a split screen where files on the left-hand side are within your own computer. You will see several folders on the right-hand side such as www, and infobots which are landmarks suggesting a successful connection to your website, as illustrated in Figure 1A.

10) Double click on "public_html".  This will take you to your web directory. This is where all your web site files will be downloaded, and/or you will create subdirectories. The only system directory that you may need to use is cgi-bin; this directory is reserved for custom scripts.

11) To upload a file or files, simply highlight the file(s) on the left and click the right arrow button (->) in the center of the window.


IMPORTANT: Be sure to upload HTML documents and cgi scripts in ASCII mode.  PHP scripts should be uploaded to the root (/public_html) directory in ASCII mode and CHMOD for PHP scripts should be set to 644.Images should be uploaded in BINARY mode. This is important. Much pain and suffering will be avoided if you remember to do this. You can specify these settings by selecting one of three radio buttons on the panel.

12) To transfer a file to a subdirectory, double-click the appropriate subdirectory to open before transferring the desired file(s). To create a new directory, click on the MkDir button when you are inside the www directory or subdirectory.

13) As soon as a file is uploaded to the web server, it is available for all to see. If, after uploading a file, you are still unable to see the updated file via Netscape, try hitting the "Refresh" or "Reload" button. If that fails, you need to clear both disk and browser cache. This function can be found by selecting Options>Network Preferences in Netscape. Remember that you must first be connected to the Internet through your local Internet service provider in order to connect to the web server.
