Making Your Own Home Page
Publishing Your Page
Once you are done with your page, you need to post it on the Internet so
that others can view it. Netscape Communicator makes this very easy
to do, with a feature called "Publish". But before you can post your
page you need to have a place on the Internet to post it. As a member
of RRCNET, you automatically get a place on the web to post your pages.
However, in order to activate that space, you must first contact RRCNET
and tell us so. To contact us, simply click "Send us e-mail" on the
left side of your screen. We will let you know when your account
is ready for your web pages. Once we let you know, you can do the

with this page."

the files uploaded successfully. If not, you'll have to check to
make sure you typed everything correctly. Pay special attention to
making sure you have the capitalization exactly right.
Note that if you named your file "index.html", you won't
need to include the filename on the end. Once you have your page
looking like you want it, be sure to send e-mail to us, to that your name
can be added to our Personal Pages section.
