Uploading a WebPage to the Internet

Uploading a WebPage to the Internet


Hello I’m SInesio Miranda and I’m doing
this video for EASI, Equal Access to software and Information. In it I’m going to be talking
to you about how to put a web page on the Internet, but I’m not going to address how
to create the web page. Basically, what I’m taking a look at is
what FTP, (file transfer protocol), is? What is a hosting service? What’s a server? And
what’s a URL? among other things OK. So I’ll start off by giving you an overview
of the different steps on how a web page is handled during its creation and after finishing
it. First, In your web developer software (like
Dreamweaver or Kompozer for example, you have to create a local folder to save your webpage,
and all the elements that you’re going to have in the web , like: buttons, pictures,
graphics, and more. Commonly this folder and any sub folders are named the same as the
folders are on the web site. Frequently, on the Web site, there are folders where all
the images used anywhere on the site are stored together. The idea is to mirror that site’s
structure. After finishing with your web page or web
pages in case you have more than one, You are ready to upload them to the Internet
by using an FTP client software like FileZilla which will enable you to transfer the Web
pages making it available to others. Of course, you’ll need to have access to
a server which will host your Web pages. Unless you have server access because of your work,
you will have to pay a monthly fee. In either case, you will need a username and password
to provide you access to this server. One last thing to say is that for these pages
to be visible on the Internet is that you have a registered Internet domain such as
(myschool.edu) or (mybusiness.com) and that the server settings are set to permit the
world to read those files. Domain names have to be purchased and that has to be periodically
renewed. Thank you for watching this video please come
