Before publishing a web site
Before publishing, you must choose a host first. A host is a company that "hosts" your
web pages on their Internet web server.
Hosting is either a free or a paid service. There are many firms with dedicated Internet
connections that offer this service for an annual or monthly fee. You are free to
choose the one that best fits your needs. There are also firms that host your site for
free if you show their advertising banners on your site (This option should be avoided
if you're creating a company site).
After choosing the host you want to use, go to the host's website to sign up for the
hosting service and activate your account. You will be given a member name,
password, the address of the host web server and a remote folder name. You will
need this information when you publish your pages.
Publishing with the Web Page Maker publishing function
Web Page Maker will publish to ANY host that uses a standard FTP set up. It has a
built-in publisher in the program, you do not need additional FTP programs to upload
The program will automatically convert your pages to HTML and then transfer them to
either a local directory on your computer or your web host server.
