Publishing a Personal Web Site

FTP to: ftp.asis.com using your ASIS username and password.

You will be taken to a directory called: /home/username

You MUST change the directory to /home/username/public_html
Note: username will be YOUR Username, not the word, username.

/home/username/public_html is where you will need to upload you Web Pages, and files associated with those pages (like images & scripts), that you want to be viewable in your Public Home Directory.

Once uploaded, your pages will be visible at:
http://www.asis.com/~username
Again: username will be YOUR Username, not the word, username.

The file you want to display as your Entrance or Front Page MUST be named index.htm or index.html

What is FTP?

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol.
It is the process by which files are uploaded to your home directory (/home/username/public_html) and made public on the World Wide Web. An FTP Client can also be used to Download files from your Home Directory to your Computer.

How Do I FTP?

There are literally dozens of different ways. Many of the programs used to create Web Pages have built in FTP Clients. Please consult the Help Menu in the Program you are using to create your Web Pages to see if an FTP Client is available for you to use.

If you cannot find an FTP Client, you may need to download one.
