Personal Web Space Help
Each Wave internet account comes with 30 MB of personal web space. You can upload your content to the web through one of these methods:
- You can use the interface through our Webmail program. Simply log in with your username and password from any web browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari). When the Webmail opens, click on the Website icon, which will open a screen where you can use the Browse button to find files to upload, then the Upload File button to publish each file to your site.
- You can upload files using FTP, which is available through web publishing programs and FTP clients or can also be accessed through many web browsers. In a publishing program, you will want to make certain that FTP is selected as the upload method. For either a web publishing or FTP program, enter the server as home.wavecable.com, and the same username and password as you use for your email.
- To use FTP through a web browser, enter ftp://home.wavecable.com into the address bar and a login window will appear. Use the same username and password as your email. You can then drag-and-drop files from your desktop or a folder window, to the browser window, and the files will upload from your computer to the server.
Once you have uploaded a file named index.html, it will be visible on the web by going to your personalized URL: http://home.wavecable.com/~username/. "Username" is your email account.
If you encounter difficulties creating your website, please be aware that our technical staff is not trained to address web design issues; you may wish to consult an HTML tutorial.
