[TechAssist] Re: Websites-Uploads and Downloads.

Perry this would take an email several feet long to explain!
I can tell you a few things now since you posted it (and in
case anyone else is wondering), if you have anymore questions
please email me off list and I'll try to answer them.

First I hope you are not still paying $20 a month since you
can't do anything to it.  That also is very expensive, unless
you have state of the art features available to you and a TON
of storage space.  If the site is only five pages, you could
use a free host.  Only the hosting company can tell you
EXACTLY how to edit/upload your pages so you'll have to ask
them that about how to get access.  As far as a 'hard drive
it's stored on', if you mean where the data resides that
visitors see when your site is visited, that of course is the
host.  When you edit a page, or upload something, it is
"FTP'd" to that hard drive (uploaded via File Transfer
Protocol).  Then, if you know nothing about the HTML language
code that makes webpages 'webpages', that's something you
have to learn and it unfortunately cannot be taught in an
email.  To see HTML code, go to any website and right click a
blank area of the page and 'view source'.

Clint and All:

I do have a Website, but it is 4 years old. The company that
set it up is no
longer in business. I do have a Hosting company, (they call
themselves
that), that I pay $20 per month. I have so many changes that
I would like to
make, but when I go to my web page and try to edit, it will
not let me. I do
not know whom's hard drive has this information stored. As
you can tell, I
am lost here. I would like to have control over my WebPages
as most of you
do, so I can make changes to keep up with the times. I can
fix any TV that
you put in front of me, and I am computer literate, but for
the life of me
domains throw me for a loop. My website has 5 pages, and I
need to change
them all, Please if someone could explain this to me in
layman's terms.

Perry if you have a website, then it can be accessed either
via their control panel, or an FTP program.  Some hosts only
offer one way, some (like mine) offer both.  If the former,
you have a link and login there with your user and pass.  You
go to the respective folder where the page resides, click it,
open it and modify it, then save it.  If you added a link to
download or view an image, you must then upload the image.
It could be in the same directory/folder, or another (in my
case, I use folders called 'images', 'images 2', etc.) then
you must using the proper HTML code reference to that image
within the HTML code of the page where the link is.

If they only offer the FTP method, this is similar, except
you access your site via an FTP program.  Most are free.  You
have download the page to your HD, modify it, then save it,
then upload it again back to the same location using the
program.

Of course you have to know HTML code in order to do these
type things, so don't attempt anything until you know it, you
could really mess up a page.  And also, ALWAYS keep a copy of
ALL you pages for a backup in case you do mess anything up.

As for images, they can be of many types.  With a digital
camera, the image is simply uploaded to the server.  With a
camcorder, you can do it, but need a video capture card to
'capture' a frame or still of video, then save/upload it.
35mm photos can also be used, but of course they must first
be developed then scanned in order to be uploaded.
