By now you should have received an email from SteadmanTech which contains your username, password and support request ID (SupportID). Please be sure to record this information in a safe place or commit it to memory as these are your tools for identification when trying to access your server as well as certain support features available to you from SteadmanTech support.
You may now begin placing web pages on your server. The file name for this HTML page is "index.php". To allow web browsers to automatically load your sites home page when accessing http://www./, you must name the home page file "index.html" or "index.htm" in lowercase and that file must be placed at the root level of your web sites directory. This is applicable for your root directory as well as any subdirectories you create.
When you publish your site you should be sure to delete the "index.php" file, replacing it with your sites home page.
In order for you to upload your pages to your site, you must use a process called File Transfer Protocol (FTP). To FTP files, you can use free FTP software or use the publish function in Microsoft FrontPage if you requested a FrontPage enabled account. Some Internet Service Providers may provide you with a custom FTP software, which you can also use if you so desire. In any case, please refer to the FTP information sent to you via e-mail to properly log-on to our system.
When you have successfully logged-on to your account via FTP, you will see the "index.php" file along with a directory named "cgi-bin". If you are using CGI scripts in your site those scripts should be placed inside the cgi-bin folder.
If you are in need of help please refer to the "Support" and "FAQ's" areas on the SteadmanTech web site. You may also feel free to send us an email at "firstname.lastname@example.org" detailing your concern. We'll do our best to respond to your needs in a efficient manner.
Thank you for your business!
