Personal Web Space

Web address
  • What is my web address?
    http://grapevine.com.au/~username or http://grapevine.net.au/~username (depending on your email address).
Building your site
  • Learn how to write in HyperText Markup Language (HTML). To do this you need a text editor such as Notepad (included with all versions of Windows. You can get it by clicking Start, then Programs, then Accessories.
  • Use an HTML editor. These work very much like word processors or desktop publishing packages. They are very good for beginners, but you don't have quite as much control over how the page appears - a good example is Microsoft Frontpage.
Uploading to your site
Once you’ve built your website, you need to upload it to your web space. Some HTML editors will do this automatically for you.

Alternatively you use an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client.
