Home Page FAQ
Since we decided to support free home pages for our users, we
have been inundated with questions regarding the setup and/or design of
personal home pages.
For your benefit, personal home pages have been simplified by IN.
You do not have to worry about setting permissions, creating directories,
or wondering where to place your files! There are a few questions
that people often ask us though; this is exactly the purpose of our FAQ.
Are there any limits to what I can do with my personal page?
1. Yes. Personal pages are limited to 5MB of disk storage
space and 25MB/month of data transfered. If your page reaches these limits, it
will be temporarily disabled until the beginning of the following month.
Who do I contact for help creating my pages?
2. Personal web pages are a free service provided by Internet
Nebraska. Due to the popularity of this service, and our commitment to providing
the best possible Internet connectivity support, we cannot answer questions about how
to write HTML. We hope you understand that this is a commitement to our level of
service to you. Learning HTML is one of the fun things that you can do with that
connectivity. For more help on learning HTML, see question number 3.
How do I write HTML for my home page?
How do I create my pages?
4. To design your pages you need an HTML
editor. For Macintosh, we recommend BBedit. For Windows, we recommend Hot Dog.
Where do I put my pages?
All of your pages should be placed in a
subdirectory called "pubhtml" off of your home directory.
A "pubhtml" subdirectory is created with proper access permissions when you sign-up.
What is the name of my first page?
6. Your first page should be called "index.htm"
A generic "index.htm" file with correct system permissions already assigned is created when you sign-up.
How do I upload my "index.htm" file to your server?
Open your FTP program and upload your file(s) to our server.
- Open the FTP program and login to inetnebr.com
- After you are logged on, double click on the pubhtml directory in the
upper right window. This is where all your files will be loaded for all your pages.
- Go to the directory on your computer (the left windows) and highlight your index.htm file.
- Click on the "right arrow" in the center of the window to copy the file to our server.
- You will need to do this for every file and image that is contained on your pages.
- If you are changing your files and going back and forth into FTP remember to click the refresh button in FTP to update your files on your computer.
How do I access my pages from Netscape?
8. Just type http://incolor.inetnebr.com/userid
for the location in Netscape. Replace userid with your userid on our system.
