 How do I create sub-directories?
When making a sub directory you should use the make directory "MkDir" function key located on your FTP program. Open up that directory then place all files that need to go in there.

 

 
 How do I get my page to load automatically? (UNIX)
You must name your main loading file "index.html". Be sure to name everything in lowercase, NOT "index.htmL". Also, this file must be located in your "public_html" directory.

 
 

 How do I update my web pages?
You can create and maintain your web pages, images, and scripts locally and upload them to the web server at your leisure via FTP. You can overwrite existing files or transfer a new file.

 
 

 How do I write HTML/create a website?
There are a large number of documents and programs on the web to help you write HTML.* * We can not help you write HTML * *. Try these listings on Yahoo for places to get started:
 
 The HTML page is garbled. What's wrong?
It is important to remember to send HTML (text) in ASCII mode and all image-format files in Binary. In addition, if you are using Word or some other text-editor locally for writing HTML, be sure to save the file as text only , not a .doc file, for example. One should notice that files in DOS can only be saved with a three-letter .htm extension. After FTPing, these files may be renamed (button) to include the .html extension. All of this is basic, but results in a majority of the FTP errors!

 


 What should I do if denied access via FTP or to "stats"?
Be sure to read the FTP tutorial that comes with the FTP software. If you still have trouble, send email to info@metanethosting.com explaining the problem in detail. Be sure to include either your user id and domain name as well as the current account password.
