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 God Bless Us All Clint Hamilton, Owner http://OrpheusComputing.com http://ComputerHardware-ConsumerElectronics.com sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Fax: 209-882-9602 TechAssist Administration http://tech-assist.org techassist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx ----- Original Message ----- From: "Electric Medic" <info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <techassist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, February 08, 2002 8:37 PM Subject: [TechAssist] Websites-Uploads and Downloads. 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.

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. -Clint God Bless Us All Clint Hamilton, Owner http://OrpheusComputing.com http://ComputerHardware-ConsumerElectronics.com sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Fax: 209-882-9602 TechAssist Administration http://tech-assist.org techassist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Electric Medic wrote: > > Gary: > > I would like to know how you posted that file as well on the web.
