Uploading web page with Windows FTP
here are instructions to put your web page on-line in your WWW directory
- For NT/95/98/XP, Click 'Start' then 'Run'
- In the window type command and press [ENTER]
- You should now be running a DOS window
- Change into the directory where you've stored your web page, ie, type cd "C:Documents and SettingsuserMy Documents",
or for XP and newer, skip this and the following step.
- You might also note, long directory names might not be the same in
DOS. If this is the case, type dir to see a listing of files and
directories the way DOS sees them. Normally if the name is very long, only
the first 6 characters are the same and the ending is replaced with ~1.
Heres an example: long version; longfoldername... short version; longfo~1 (XP and newer, skip)
- Now, Type ftp scc.net****
****NOTE: If you are uploading to your own domain use www.yourdomain.com instead of scc.net as shown below.

- For XP and newer, you can simply type 'put' and then click the file you want to upload and drag it into your ftp window and
- Your main page should always be titled index.html, other files will
have the same name as you originally titled them.
- When you have finished, at the ftp> prompt type quit, then exit
That's it! You're done. You now have a home page on the World Wide Web.
