Before you Start

  1. Create your Web Space in Account Manager
    Before you can publish your first Web page, you will first need to "create your Web space" on our server.
    • Open the Web Site Manager. Go to the Qwest.net Account Tools menu in the top Qwest.net navigation bar and click "Create My Personal Web Page."
    • Click on the link "Create Your Web Space" and follow the instructions on that page.

    Be sure that you have the URL for your Web space on hand because you will need this for uploading your page. For example: http://www.users.qwest.net/~username.

  2. Name your main web page index.html
    Create the name "index.html" for your main Web page (this is so that your main Web page will automatically load when the address for your Web site is entered). Other pages you create that are linked to this main page may be named anything.

Publishing your Web Pages Using FTP

Qwest.net offers FTP access to our Web server. We will set up your primary account user name and password on our FTP server to allow you to access your Web site files.

  • User Name: Your primary account user name
  • Password: Your primary account password

When you have successfully connected to the Qwest.net FTP server, you will see a "Welcome to Qwest.net FTP Web Publishing" message.
