Welcome to paulmccarthy.eu
This website is hosted at Hostica.com, provider of low cost web hosting and domain name registration services.
You can access your website right away using d4903668.temp113.hostica.com.
Over the next few days, DNS servers all across the Internet will update themselves with your new site name. Once that happens, you will be able to access your site at its permanent address, paulmccarthy.eu.
1. All your website files need to go into the folder named paulmccarthy.eu. The paulmccarthy.eu folder is already created for you on the server. You can upload your website files using an FTP program, website editor, or the FileManager (aka Webshell) program in your account.
2. Your start page (or home page) needs to be named index.html. For example, if you have named your start page "home.html" , "default.html", or anything else, you will need to rename it to index.html and upload it to the paulmccarthy.eu folder. Doing so will replace this file you are currently reading.
3. Although not necessary, it is suggested to keep your images in paulmccarthy.eu/images/. That way, when linking to your images, you can use the following img tag: <img src="/images/image.name">.
1. Before you can use FrontPage to publish your website, you will need to first enable the FrontPage extensions for it. To enable FrontPage extensions for your domain:
- Log into your hosting account.
- Click on the "Web Options" icon.
- Click the icon next to FrontPage extensions to enable them.
- Complete each screen presented to complete the setup of the extensions.
2. Using FrontPage to publish your website is different than using a standard FTP program. To publish your FrontPage Web:
- Open FrontPage
- Go to File / Open Web
- Select the Web you have created on your PC
- Once opened, go to File / Publish Web
- Enter http://d4903668.temp113.hostica.com, and press Enter.
- A popup box will display, asking for your FrontPage username and password. Enter them exactly as you created them when you enabled the FrontPage extensions for your website in your hosting account.
- The contents of your FrontPage web will then be published.
This is important, because using the correct publishing address will ensure uploading of your files into the correct folder.
