i am really new to this and i have no clue what i’m doing. my boyfriend bought me this for my birthday so i didn’t really have time to research what to do with all this “webamster stuff”. ok so here goes, i have microsoft front page 2000. how do i upload my pages to the net? what is my ftp address? i’ve tried every thing i can think of and it never works. i basically just need step by step instructions on EVERYTHING. please help. thank you so much! :slight_smile:

Do you have an FTP program, or does Frontpage include one?

Your FTP address could be ftp.mydomain.com, ftp.mydomain.dreamhost.com, or you just use the generic server at crayx.dreamhost.com.

I understand the need to use the word “everything,” but it helps a lot if you have more specific questions, or narrow your questions down to more specific topics.


Well DreamHost supplies you with a lot of information to get started. If your not able to handle it, try using Geocities.com. Its really good for beginners.

A couple of good sources for getting started with web design are:

Getting Started
Design Basics
HTML Basics
The Foundations of Web Design
Information Architecture

Hope that helps!
