Put in a Service Request Ticket

In order to receive webhosting for html and ftp, users must put in a service request ticket, when requesting webhosting, please use the Web Hosting category.

Download a template

Templates are located under the Templates link above.

Edit

Once you have downloaded a template, extract the files contained in the zip file to a location on your computer. Next, use an HTML editor to open the “index.html” file.

If you are using a WYSIWYG editor such as Microsoft Expressions or Adobe Dreamweaver, you will see real-time results as you modify the page’s content. Text editors such as Notepad and Wordpad will only allow you to view and modify your template in its raw HTML state.

Those who are familiar with HTML may use Notepad or a similar text editor to edit their web site.

Save

Your “index.html” file is the first web page users will see when they visit your website. The first page of a website typically includes an introduction, welcome message, or mission statement.

All web pages within your site must be saved to the root directory (in the same folder as index.html).

Upload

Once you are finished editing a particular web page, or if you want to upload your website for the first time, you have a few options that will allow you to connect to the web server.

You will need to connect to the web server via FTP. Most WYSIWYG editors have built-in FTP functionality.
