Support - WebsiteThis page will tell you how to get your first webpage online! Yes, you too can have a website!
The first thing you need to do is FTP your files to MonkeyBrains. These files need to be put in the right place so that they show up at your URL (Universal Resource Locator ... the thing you type into the Location: field of your browser):
|Where to FTP files for your personal Website|
|Login||your username & password|
|FTP path for your website||/public_html/ |
|Personal website URL||http://www.monkeybrains.net/~username/|
Here is the best trick for making a website: find a site you like and go to it. Your browser has the ability to show you the raw HTML (Hyper-Text-Markup-Language) which makes up the page you are looking at. Select from your menu View-Page Source. If you are within a frameset (sometimes you can't even tell if you are!) select View-Frame Source. If the page is not done loading, this option will be grayed out (non-selectable). Also, on pages with no framesets, the View-Frame Source will be grayed out. Now you can Cut-N-Paste the HTML.
HTML is easy. There are three basic ways to make a web page:
You can jazz up your site with pictures (gif's and jpg's), multimedia (director and flash), and music (see Billy's site: Wigout). There are many examples and tutorials on the web. Browse around and mimic what you like.
Advanced info: You can add a guestbook, use server-side includes, Add a Blog, and use password protection on your site. MonkeyBrains does not supply tech support for these features. You must figure out how to use these features on your own, or by researching the web.
