Just got some webspace, want to set up a simple page

Post icon  Posted 07 January 2010 - 04:37 PM

Well I just got a site with free unlimited space and bandwidth so I thought I'd set up a simple homepage for now and when I get more into HTML, turn it into something better. The question IS; how do I make a homepage by uploading via FTP? What do I name the file, and where do I put it?

Well I know most of the time for me, it just goes right in the root directory and you name the file index.

As for FTP you usually have a username and password plus you have to put the domain name you are going to connect to.

Which hosting service do you have and what program for FTP are you using?

t35 hosts the site. I'm using filezilla for FTP.

Also thanks it's up and running, while still in work it's working :)
