How should I name my website?
We recommend that you name your first page index.html in your directory. If a user specifies the URL for your domain, index.html is first automatically searched and loaded.
File names are case-sensitive (uppercase and lowercase letters are different letters) and should not contain spaces or non-alphanumeric characters. The underscore (_) and hyphen (-) characters are OK to use. Your HTML files preferably end with .html, and your graphics files must end with .jpg, .jpeg, or .gif.
How can I transfer my website to the Bardstown Connect web server?
Once you have completed your web page and tested it on your local system, you need to transfer (upload) it to the Bardstown Connect web server. To upload the file, you can use the publishing capabilities of FileZilla Client, Adobe Dreamweaver Publisher, or any File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client.
When you initiate an FTP, you’ll need this information: The hostname of the server is telnet.bardstowncable.net
Type your User Name and Password, and click on connect to host. FTP will provide you with the listing of the files in your web directory. Select Binary transfer mode or if using Mac OS, select the Raw Data formats. Create a directory called www (most ftp client programs have a button called mkdir). Then transfer the file(s) into the new directory, (www). Don’t forget to disconnect when done.
Note: if you are not able to transfer files into your web directory you might not have enough free space and have exceeded your quota or disk space.
How can I view my website?
Once your files are uploaded, you can use the browser to view your web page.
The URL is http://www.bardstowncable.net/~yourusername/filename.html.
If you have a custom domain, then the URL becomes http://www.yourdomain.com/filename.html
If there is a file named index.html in your directory, the browser will first load this page when the URL http://www.bardstowncable.net/~yourusername is loaded.
If you have trouble with your file, make sure first that your browser can open the file on your local system. If you have errors on the page, you probably have HTML problems. Some common problems are HTML files must be text and have preferably .html extensions. Also, please note username and file.html are case-sensitive.
Please remember Bardstown Connect customer service can only tell you if the file was transferred successfully. They do not debug and fix any HTML problems.
What steps do I need to take to maintain my website?
After creating your web page you might need to revise, update and maintain your page. To do so, make the necessary changes to the files on your computer and then transfer the files to telnet.bardstowncable.net server. If the new file is saved under the same name it will overwrite the existing file when you FTP.
To delete files from the Bardstown Connect web server in your directory, you can use the FTP client software (for example WS_FTP for Windows and Fetch for Macintosh) It is recommended you delete files or images that you don’t need to optimize the use of your disk space. Finally, make sure you Backup all your web page files and images on your own computer.
Does Bardstown Connect support custom domain names?
We do support custom domain names (for example http://www.yourdomain.com) You can set up a new domain name, or move your existing domain name to Bardstown Connect. If you would like to check if the domain name you want is available do the following: head to either a DOS prompt or a command prompt after attaching to your server and type “whois” and your proposed name. If you get an answer that it can’t find the name, try entering the name into your browser. If you get a DNS entry error, there’s a pretty good chance you’re the first to think of it. Also, you can simply use the link http://www.internic.net/whois.html Once a domain name is registered by a person or company, it can not be used again by anyone else, since every domain name must be unique. Thousands of domain names are registered every week on the internet, so it’s best to reserve your domain name before it’s taken by someone else. If you have any more questions please contact us.
