Posting Your Page Online - HTML 4

After you’re happy with your Web page, it’s time to put it online. “Proper Planning Prevents Poor Page Performance” includes a detailed discussion of what you need to do to put your page online, but to sum it up in a few quick steps:

  1. Find a Web hosting provider to hold your Web pages.
  2. Your Web host might be a company Web server or space that you pay an Internet service provider (ISP) for. If you don’t have a host yet, doublecheck with the ISP you use for Internet access — find out whether you get some Web-server space along with your access. Regardless of where you find space, get details from the provider on where to move your site’s files and what your URL will be.

  3. Use an FTP client or a Web browser to make a connection to your Web server.
  4. Use the username and password, as specified in the information from your hosting provider, to open an FTP session on the Web server.

  5. Copy the HTML file from your hard drive to the Web server.
  6. Use your Web browser to view the file via the Internet.

For example, to host our letter online at, we used Internet Explorer to access the site and provided the appropriate name and password, which you get from your ISP. A collection of folders and files appeared.

We copied the file to the server with a simple drag-and-drop operation from Windows Explorer to Internet Explorer.
