Setting up your members webspace
Posted by Mark Vandepol on 06 May 2011 02:35 PM

Before we begin, ensure you have requested your web space.

1. You need to design your web site. We strongly suggest a book on HTML and/or web design. You can find many of these books at Indigo or other fine bookstores.

2. It is very important that you name your main page or homepage "index.html" or "index.htm" (without the quotes). This is because the computer needs to know which is the main page, and this has become the common naming convention.

3. After you have made your web page(s), you need to send them to our server. To do this, you need an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program. We suggest Filezilla. If you would like to learn more about FTP and how it works, check out FTP Planet.

The settings you need for your FTP program are as follows:

Profile name: members.kingston.net
server (hostname): members.kingston.net
username: same password as your main connection username
password: same password as your main connection password

Do not add anything to the default remote directory section of your FTP program
You can safely ignore the rest of the settings and options in your FTP program.

Once this has been done, you will want to view your new website in your web browser. Your URL would be http://members.kingston.net/<username>

What you get with your free personal webspace:
1. 5MB of space for your files
2. No CGI or FrontPage access

Please note: If you are experiencing a problem with your website, feel free to contact technical support. However, WTC Communciations provides NO support for HTML issues.
