Using FTP to transfer files to your site
Once you have created any files you wish to be on your site, you
are going to need to move them from your local computer onto your
virtual server. If you are using CompuServe, AOL Netcom or a similar
Internet access service you may have an FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
interface built into your service. If you do not, we recommend the
following FTP software available on the Internet (use your favorite
search engine to find the nearest download site):
Configuring Your FTP Software
You will need the following information to log your FTP software
into your new site: User ID, Password,
FTP Host Name. IHPS can provide this information to
you by e-mail when we set up your new site. If you misplace or lose
the information, please call, or e-mail
requesting the information again.
When you upload your files, here are a few important things to
You will need to give your first (home) document a default
name, like index.html.
If you host on a virtual server that is running the UNIX
operating system, which is case sensitive, you should
consistently make all your file names and extensions lower case
When you configure your FTP software choose Automatic
Detect for Host Type.
When you connect to your site you will be in your
"root," or top level directory of your domain. At this
point you could use your FTP software to create directories to store
your files in. You may wish to create additional subdirectories to
separate files and images.
If you have requested a hosting account option that includes CGI
script capability, and you are going to create and/or use CGI
scripts, they need to be uploaded into the subdirectory named cgi-bin.
All references to CGI scripts should be made as follows: yourdomaincgi/your_script_name.
The cgi-bin subdirectory is aliased for URL reference purposes. For
example, if your domain name is greatstuff.com, you would make all
references to scripts in your web pages and other scripts as
greatstuffcgi/your_script_name. Replace your_script_name
with your actual CGI script name.
