I am creating my homepage in FrontPage. Do you support
Yes, we do support FrontPage extensions. If you wish
to create a web page using FrontPage than please contact
us first and we will allow you access to the extensions.
How do I upload the web page that I created?
The best way is to use an FTP program, you can find
one on our page. When you have an FTP program it will
ask you for the name of the server you want to connect
to. This will be ftp.cintek.com. It will also ask
for your username and password. Make sure that you enter
these in lowercase. This is all the required information,
you can ignore all other settings. When the program connects,
you will be put into your home directory. In this directory,
you will find another directory called "web".
Use the FTP program to transfer the files off of your
computer and into this directory. Once you have uploaded
the files you can see if it worked by using your browser
and going to http://www.cintek.com/~username(where
username is your username). If your page does not work,
or is full of missing links, than make sure that you have
paid special attention to capitals and lowercase letters.
The servers are case sensitive (meaning A is a totally
different letter from a, and so forth).
