HOW TO LOAD YOUR WEBSITE! FTP!
FTP is a magic phrase you want to learn so you can have a website.
FTP is how you send articles to your site where readers get to read, ADVERTISERS get to BEG YOU TO PUT PAID ADS UP.
FTP Stands for FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL. It's easy as pie. ESPECIALLY when you download the tiny program ONLINE FREE, CORE it is called, the only FREE HTM SOFTWARE you can get and the BEST. You will need one 2 min. lesson from SOMEONE WHO SITS NEXT TO YOU, and you will be able to do it. That is, IF your website TEACHER really wants to show you how EZ it is, eh? Cuz some teachers would rather have you PAY THEM to load your website. Then --they are called 'webmasters.' Nobody needs a master, unless you wanna be a slave, right? So put on your glasses, roll up your sleeves instead! Let's start learning to FTP all by our lonesome!
YOU HAVE a website, don't you? Well, you do if you arranged with your server. EARTHLINK gave me a few free ones, not domain names, just freebie websites! Convenient for my first decade online, back when Craigs list blocked http www sites and let mine in, with names like http://home.earthlink.net/~astrologer/ But now there's no more incentive to get those freebie sites that have no ww's and no http.
To start having a website, READ "HOW TO RUN YOUR OWN WEBITE." THEN google up a lot of state of the art FTP programs and download a few. They're free. I like FTP COMMANDER.
THEN, you ask your TEKKIE guide, at your server, "WHAT DO I FILL IN to the box. It asks me WHO, WHERE, I do not know the answer. Cuz to set up your FTP Software and its ICON, It's a matter of there being some INFO IN IT. VIEW THIS MORE DETAILED ARTICLE ON THE INS AND OUTS OF FTP SOFTWARE. AFTER READING IT, you will be able to do the actual FTPING to your SERVER. & GET AD REVENUE like ME!
Your server SHOULD give you a website home free. Earthlink gives me mine free. TEN MEGS of space, TEN MILLION BYTES. And you can buy bigger ones but I take the free one. Go see it, http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology/ and see what we're talking about. Then one day I got a tekkie on the phone said Please, give me another free one. He did, http://home.earthlink.net/~anitaastrologer/
So now I have two free websites. Then a pal who also used Earthlink told me she had more than that, so I asked for another, got http://home.earthlink.net/~loveguru/
LATER I found out EARTHLINK promises all of us TEN FREEBIE SITES. Trouble is you can only get 100 visitors a month to your page then they close it until the FIRST day of coming MONTH to squeeze you for l0 times the money. So maybe you can get a SERVER that gives away these free ten meg websites. Times three maybe. You do this BY SEARCHING ON SERVERS IN YOUR AREA and seeing who offers what, for how much.
Now, you may already have a site, in which case you have a domaine name. Now, before you go hire a costly designer, let's create you a webpage. Do you have an index page at your website? You have to have an index page up in cyberspace, that's requirement ONE to FTP. Like you have to have a catcher if you're going to throw a ball. But as (IN THIS CASE) the MITT is over there, at your WEBHOST.
I figured out how to load my freebie sites with ELN tekkies' help but when I got my domain name, It took me a few 800# phone calls to the webhost tekkie to figure out how to load it. Earthlink has 24/7 tekkies on the 800 number. They are soooo great! So get Earthlink. And tell them I sent you, astrology at earthlink as then I get a free month.
On your website, we expect to see some HUSTLE AND FLOW. SOME BIO. SOME PICTURES. SOME COLOR. At least, after I learned how to do graphics. (Go see my effort: THE LIFE 101 WEBINAR, a thousand articles long, every secret of millionaire entrepreneurs... all free. This is a basic "intro, greetings, explanation, a bio, then a list of articles or LINKS that you've collected, which they can read. I enjoy Live links promising articles at a fingerclick! If they aren't there, well 'save' your webpage and create some live links on it yourself.
WRITE THE TEXT of your webpage, your INDEX PAGE. " HI, I'm the MASSAGE THERAPIST, this is the FREE DO IT YOURSELF SEMINAR so you can become one, too, make a million dollars a year....then describe your first article. Say in at least 14 size FONT, "Here is how you heal a body and the kind of massage to use. MASSAGE 101"
People get that that's a live link. They will click on it. Because you told them it was an article Do that times twenty, you have an index page!
SOME PEOPLE like BUTTONS like BIO, CONTACT, ARCHIVE, BLAH BLAH BUTTONS. I just put the LIVE LINKS lined up on the page. But you can google buttons and find them and download them. It's just a small graphic, a gif or jpg file. You right click on it once it's on your design and then it becomes a live button that leads to something.
OK, Now say you built a webpage, it has twenty articles, and twenty live links. That's a good number. LESS is kind of THIN. ARCHIVES should have a few dozen, actually. Each with a description. Now, if you don't write, yourself, you can find one online, that's up your alley. Get permission to use it, tell the writer, may I post your article at my website to explain shiatsu massage. I will give you credit. The important thing is, save it as html. EVERYTHING online is saved as html. Microsoft word will save it as text, doc or html.
Create a directory to hold your website articles. Call it 'website.' Put it on C or D drive. If you have two hard drives. Now, SAVE that article you just wrote in html over to the C:\WEBSITE directory. OR WHAT I DO is a TREE with branches for each directory. C:| activism C:]BABIES. THEME BRANcHES.
YOUR INDEX page is going to be named, (duhhh) index.htm. It's the greeting, bio, the explanation, the archive page. Like the front page of a magazine. So write index.htm. Better, my FOOD INDEX or my PETCARE index... Save it to C:\website.
or C:\FOODINDEX . A branch in your tree for every theme, every index theme.
If you already have an index.htm that your webmaster created, Enter it now. You enter it via a word processor. MICROSOFT WORD is the one we all have, whether in office 97. Office 2000 We all have WORD.
So brainstorm up your index page. PHOTO of you, your TITLE, the description of what you offer. What changes do you want to make? Go over your index page in MICROSOFT WORD in your own PC and do what you want to it. Change colors, prints, fonts. Now you must create a live link to that new article on LOVE. TO GO BACK OVER YOUR OWN INDEX PAGE is absolutely no hard trick --- it's EASY.
To find the page if you don't have it on C:\website\index.htm is to GO VISIT YOUR OWN WEBSITE in CYBERSPACE! Then, tell your PC to 'SAVE' the entire index page again, as index.HTM. Now get offline. And go enter it wherever you saved it. I suggest you save it to C:\website directory.
Next, use microsoft word to ENTER that file index.htm. And scroll down to where your list of articles begins. I call mine, my archive area.AND THEN EDIT the INDEX PAGE, and say 'read this great article here on my confessions and it's AND CREATE THE URL, the live link. OR say "HELLO FRIENDS, want to read an article on being lucky in love and not making my mistakes? Click on this. You write the inviting phrase, or descriptive phrase right there. HOW TO NOT MAKE MISTAKES and ATTRACT LUCK. AND YOU SELECT A FEW WORDS THERE to become the live links words. MAYBE NOT MAKE MISTAKES And you then highlight those three words and use the chain icon to turn it into a live link. It asks you for the articles address. Say http://www.luckinlove.com/confession.htm and then hit ENTER and it will turn 'live' on you. IT IS SUDDENLY A LIVE LINK on an HTM page. YOU SENT IT!
Now, go find the article confession.htm which is in your LOVE DIRECTORY. Now do a final edit and save it both on C: LOVE and as C:\website also as that's your website directory. You can edit it first, make changes, but save it on website directory as that's the one you use as a diving board when you FTP. AND THEN go to desk top, turn on your FTP machine via its icon and FTP IT. It leaps off diving board into cyberspace!
You can use several softwares to do INDEX pages and ARTICLES: Microsoft word is fine or I HAVE NETSCAPE COMMUNICATOR BROWSER nad inside it, there's COMPOSER.. A fine word processor for htm. Or, use your other webmaking software. However, Microsoft Word or OFFICE they call it, is just very accessible and as good as any. ENTER THE CONFESSION file, SAVE FILE as confession.htm If you make a mistake and save it as CONFESSION.htm nobody will ever find it. These things are very 'case-sensitive.'
A week later, you have ANOTHER terrific article. HOW TO FIND LOVE.
Now, you go back to c:\website and hopefully you find index, and called it INDEX.HTM cuz you have to put a little pillow in your index page for this new article. The index htm is like the INDEX in a magazine. Now add a new live link. A new article that is under that LIVE LINK. To do that, we write the HYPE "GREATEST ARTICLE HERE on HOW TO BE HAPPY" so FIRST TYPE THE HYPE "THE SECRET OF HOW TO FIND TRUE LOVE" Now highlight that phrase by running MOUSE over it. NOW while it's highlighted, you're going to create a live link! See how MICROSOFT offers you free jewelry? YEs! You have a little tiny gold chain in a circle like a bracelet or smaller a CHAIN RING at top of screen in microsoft word. CLICK on it . You have just instructed it to give you a menu so you can create a LIVE LINK of that "SECRET" phrase hype you highlighted.
Fill in what it asks. It asks the 'address' of your live link so GIVE YOUR WEBSITE ADDRESS http://www.MYWEBSITE.ORG/SECRET.html THAT is a live link. put that http and the www thing there and all cyberspace knows that THIS is a link! Cuz it turns blue, underlined and all.
So you have just saved a LINK a new LINK on your index page. NOW YOU GOTTA PUT THAT INDEX PAGE back into cyberspace by FTPing the thing. So, leave your index page where it is in Word, you have your index page saved as htm and you save your article as htm which is SECRET.htm. TO FTP you have to know where you keep it. You can't go get a vase and pick it up if you don't know what pantry you left it in. C:\website is where.
So You save it to one of your own directories. I have one called C:\WEBSITE. EASY? convenient? Not hard to remember? That's my diving board. When i Turn the FTP mechanism on, it's on the left. The diving board. And the article LEAPS off it to the right screen which is the swimming pool, online!
Your FTP machine know syou have a C DRIVE and it knows your C DRIVE has many directories. Under that heading, c:\ (on my tree) I also have headings that read "stars, "palms, Clients" "Money," "real estate tips" "Stock tips" MY Articles, HOLISM, arthritis article all those headings, written as files stars.htm palm.htm So my C:\WEBSITE DIRECTORY is fully loaded with the different objects I work on or send, or rewrite exclusively for my website.
SO USE EXPLORER OR ZTREE to create the directories you need. Like files in a file cabinet. HEALTH, WEALTH, FAMILY, MY NOVELS, whatever.
WHEN YOU HAVE LOADED your articles onto the different DIRECTORIES C:\LOVE or C:\MY NOVELS or whatever, take any newly finished article and stick it on the right directory.
Now go back to main front piece of your PC, called DESK TOP. You are in WINDOWS. You are not in your tree. YOU CAN ONLY SEE A TREE In DOS. Which ztree is. But you remember what part of tree your WEBSITE COLLECTION IS ON. C:\WEBSITE\SECRET.htm For me it's easy to remember as I can actually view my trees. IN DOS as I have 30$ software called ZTREE so I can be in my tree whenever I want. I can scoot to D:\htmdoc\judithscope.htm by using ztree. It's visual. Looks like a tree go to http://www.ztree.com and download free copy. Play with it.
So I can jump around fast, to any file out of thirty thousand files. And when you have as many files as I do, you have to call things FARMING, with twenty articles. GARDEN twenty five, PALMISTRY fifty, STARS a hundred. YOu really need an organized pantry! TREE is only way. I call articles LUCKINLUV or BADMAN or CURCANCER or GROWROSES.htm but I give them names I can recall easily!
But you are not in your tree now. You are on your DESK TOP. ICON there says FTP. Pretty little picture of an
FTP ICON.. You click on it. THE FTP menu comes up POP! It has one picture of your own tree and one of your website! Right there in front of you. You say to it, CHANGE DIRECTORY" It asks you Tto where? You say
NOW you see menu of all files in website directory on your own PC. PALM.htm STAR.htm GET A MAN.doc (whoops, gotta change that one to HTM!) LOSE A MAN BAD MAN GIVE UP MEN. You click twice on badman.htm and >............................>-------------------> it flies across page to the right hand side
of screen where you see your actual WEBSITE THAT FILE TRANSFER THING WINGS THE FILE TO WEBSITE!
Another group of articles is over on right hand side ON YOUR WEBSITE, right? You get to look at all the files up there: SISTERS, HOW TO DUMP, HOW TO GET, ETC , and you PUT your article over there. I mean it flies
there.. IT CAN FIT on top of an article that's there, (as in rewrite,) IF IT HAS THE SAME TITLE!!! or it can just be a new, freestanding article.
Think vases on shelf. You move vase from left side to right. You can even move a new red vase OVER ON TOP OF TO REPLACE THE OLD RED VASE! So you mesh molecules, right? Now, if there are live links on your index page in cyberspace..meaning when you VISIT YOUR WEBSITE, you see clickable urls, live links, BLUE UNDERLINES on words. So you 'get the picture' I can click here and I'll see something.... You'll maybe see a
live link on your website that looks like this. HOW TO MEET A GOOD MAN and it's underlined in blue. People can click on it right? It's a LIVE LINK right? So when they visit your site, and click on your index page where it says HOW TO MEET--- , BINGO they are transported into that vase on the shelf at the right. And can read every molecule. SO YOU CREATE the vase on right side of shelf when you FTP? get it? FTP is no mystery. It's easy! ONLY HARD part for me was creating the MENU INSIDE THE FTP MACHINE on DESKTOP cuz it asks questions like "WHAT DO YOU CALL THAT THINGIE OVER THERE?" I had to ask my EARTHLINK TEKKIE, wht part of you am I likely to be FTPing to. Or ask the DOMAINE NAME SERVER for the two domains I work on. EVEN THEN, it took fiddling.
GET YOUR WEBSITE cuz NOW you can put ads at CRAIGS, attract readers, have a website and start to be a great teacher!

FTP stands for file transfer protocol, which is the process of connecting two computers to each other so that you can transfer files between them. To do this, you need what is known as an FTP client. A client is another word for a program on your computer - Program examples are things like Microsoft Word, Excel, Netscape, Windows or Solitaire. The best way to get the client you need (we have been using WSFTP LE)
you will need to open your web browser and type http://www.download.com into
the address bar. Once there, you can type "WS FTP LE" into the "Search"
box on the download.com web site, and the site will find the program. It
will probably give you two or three options, and each option will have a
"Download Now" button on the right hand side of the screen. Click the
"download now" button for the first WS FTP LE option you get. It will
ask you to save the program, just be sure to note where the program is
saving to by pulling down the menu next to "Save In:." Once you've done
that and clicked "save" the browser will download the program for you.
Once the program is downloaded (it will be called ws_ftple.exe or just
ws_ftple) you need to install it. Installing is very easy, simply
double-click on the ws_ftple icon and follow the instructions it will
give you. If/when it asked you what you will use this program for, say
"for personal use" or that you are a student, this guarantees the
program is free. Once the program is installed, you will be able to find
WSFTP by looking in your "START" menu.
Answers to FTP and class related questions
HOW DO I CONNECT WITH MY
What you need to connect with your server is the
Host name (or address) : CHOCOLATE.COM let's pretend..
User Name (or User ID) : chocaholic
Once you are in, you get the two screens side by side. The one on your left
is your local computer, the one on your right is the remote computer - ie,
your web site.
Finding your files is a little tricky (because the-spa.com is set up in a
completely non-intuitive fashion). When you first log in through FTP, the
first thing you will see on the right is the green up arrow and a directory
called "web." The space under "Remote system" will read "/users/sister".
What you have to do is double-click on the green arrow. You will go back a
directory level (ie, the top will read "users" and the folder "sister" will
be visible in the big window). You will double-click on the green arrow
again - you should now see four or five folders, and the "Remote system"
should now be "/". The last folder should be another "web" folder. This
folder is where you will find your web site files. To access them, double
click on this folder. This is your Web Folder.
(To eliminate all of this shifting around every time you log on, you can
tell WS-FTP to take a shortcut directly to the correct folder. Once you are
in the correct "web" folder, you can click on the "Options" button on the
bottom of your FTP window. Once there, there is a big button that says
"Save current directories as connection directories." If this button is
pressed, from then onwards, every time you connect to sisteroftheheart.org
with FTP it will go right to that directory.)
Remember, when you're updating HTML, what you want to do is make sure
you're in the right folder when you are downloading or uploading files.
When you're in the web browser (Netscape or Internet Explorer) whatever is
in the address bar just above your web page is the list of folders you will
need to click on to get to that page in FTP. So if you wanted to update
http://www.sisteroftheheart.org/teachings/affirmations/6_03.html, you would
need to look in your Web Folder for a folder called "teachings,"
double-click on it, look for a folder called "affirmations," double-click
on that, then look for the file called "6_03.html" and download it to make
changes. Also if you want to upload the updated page, you must make sure
you are in the right directory, otherwise at best your changes won't
reflect, at worst, you'll accidentally write over the wrong file.
I would also recommend downloading a backup copy of your web site onto your
computer before you begin. To do this, click on the green arrow on the
left hand side of the screen until the "Local System" reads "C:\". Then I
would go to your root directory on the right side of the screen (click the
green arrow until "remote system" reads "/"). Highlight the "web" folder,
and click the arrow button in the middle going towards your computer. It
will ask you if you want to transfer all directory structures, you want to
click "Yes." But my 7,000 files are backed up on the NET ITSELF, and only
a SOLAR EVENT CME could blast them down, that or my passing on and my
4kids not paying domain monger or 5$hosting the 60 to 100 a year needed for rent!
So that's FTP in a nutshell! Go get your free software.
See? They are giving it away free all over the internet. GOOGLE "ftp" + download + free + software
