Setting up a Homepage Using a PPP Account

    Customers who do not have a shell will have to use an FTP program to upload their web pages to CyberGate. Any FTP client program will work and the Netscape browsers support FTP for both downloading and uploading. Be sure to upload your files to your public_html directory.

    Please note that CyberGate allocates 10mg of storage space for your personal web page and e-mail account. It is the customers responsibility for staying below the allocated quota. Also note you must have a CyberGate premium analog or basic/premium ISDN account to set up a web page.

    Netscape Navigator Gold features automatic publishing.  In order to use this feature, your main page should be named "index.html" (do not include quote marks) and all links to documents and images on your site must be in the same directory.

    I. Follow the steps below to configure Netscape Navigator Gold's publishing feature.

    1. Click on Options, then Editor Preferences. Select the Publish tab. Select the option Maintain Links. This insures that all links are maintained when the document is transferred between the server and your machine.
    2. Check Keep images with document. This insures that all images will be kept in the same directory as the document.
    3. Fill out the Default publishing location info as follows using your user id and password.

    NOTE: If you want to keep images and files in subdirectories under the public_html directory, then you will have to edit the links to reflect these subdirectories. Netscape Navigator Gold will only maintain links when they are in the same directory.
