PSPUG is pleased to be able to offer its members webspace for their PSPUG projects. The following pages will describe the various aspects as related to registering for web space. There is also an opportunity to explore a demo site and explore the two methods for managing the site.
Web Space may be rented on PSPUG and is to be in accordance with the
Terms of Service Agreement. The cost of the Web Space includes the site being registered so that your domain name will have its own unique URL (domain name of your choice).
Web Space may be used to display Homework (for the Self
Learning Programme and/or Beginner Class Program) and/or other graphics
and work related to PSPUG activities and use of PSP.
Using FTP and Control Panel
There are two ways to access one's web site to manage it, upload files, update files, create directories (folders) and other functions related to the site. FTP (file transfer protocol) is an application that allows connecting to the website and the Control Panel is a web based site manager system.
Each of these ways to manage one's sites has its advantages. Also, it will be one's preference which one to use or maybe use both programs. The FTP program may be the easiest to use for uploading of files either singularly or many files at once. The Control Panel may be the easiest to use to edit files, change file permissions if needed, to view on-line the contents of files.
