- Step Two
- Write your HTML Web Pages!
Writing your Web Pages is getting easier everday with the introduction
of more and more software products that allow you to write documents in
HTML. HTML is the language used to write Web Pages, and many new
programs permit you to write HTML without ever having to learn the
language. Check your favorite bookstore or computer store for a wide
selection of HTML books, programs and editors. Alternatively, you may

- Step Three
- Upload your Web Pages to IgLou!
After completion of your web pages, the third step is to upload your
pages and graphics files to IgLou's system. This is commonly performed
with a utility called FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol.
Popular versions of FTP exist for both
Windows95 or 3.1 or for Macintosh.
Once you have dialed into IgLou with your PPP account, simply start up
your FTP program. Connect to the host ftp.iglou.com and specify
your normal IgLou username and password. Be sure to turn
the anonymous connection feature off.
Once connected with FTP, change into your "homepages" subdirectory
in your IgLou Personal Workspace and copy your HTML and graphics files into
this directory. For additional help with this process, you can contact
IgLou Technical Support at (800) 436-4456.
Your default page, or your main page, should be stored in a file name
called "index.html". This will be the main page that is loaded when
others access your web site by the above address. You may, however,
reference other files stored in your "homepages" sub-directory from
within your "index.html" file. If your file is not called
"index.html", you will need to rename it to this. This can be done
through your FTP client program.
- Step Four
- Test your Web Pages!
After your pages have been uploaded, you can try out your new Personal Web
Site by using Netscape to view the URL:
Be sure to replace "username" with your normal IgLou username.
