How can I transmit files such as pictures to my personal Frontier Web space? Do I need to use FTP?

  Print  |    E-mail  

The following are instructions for uploading web pages to your web space via Internet Explorer 6. For instructions for other browsers, please see the related listings below.

Note: If your e-mail address ends with frontier.com, you'll need to disable Passive FTP before you can accomplish the steps noted below.

  1. If your e-mail address ends with @frontier.com, click to open your Internet Explorer browser and in the address bar, type in: ftp://username@myplace.frontier.com, filling in the username space the part of your e-mail address before the @ symbol.

    If your e-mail address ends with @frontiernet.net, @citlink.net, @newnorth.net, or @gvni.com, click to open your Internet Explorer browser and in the address bar, type in: ftp://username@frontiernet.net, filling in the username@frontiernet.net space with your own e-mail address. (Your username is the part of your e-mail address before the @ symbol).

    If your e-mail address ends with @epix.net, please use an FTP program to upload your files to your personal Frontier web space.




  2. When the Login As window appears, log in by typing your User Name (the first part of your e-mail address). Type in your password. Click Login.



  3. Once you are connected to your FTP site, you'll see two folders. Click
    to open the Public HTML folder.



  4. Find the picture on your computer that you would like to display on your Web space. Copy or drag the picture to the Public HTML window.





  5. Once you have placed the picture into the public_html folder, you (and others) should be able to view it online.



  6. If your e-mail address ends with @frontier.com, to access the picture online, open your Internet browser and type the following into the address bar:

    http://myplace.frontier.com/~username/picturename.extension

    and filling in the username space with your own username. (Your username is the part of your e-mail address before the @ symbol, and picturename.extension is the name of the picture.)

    It is important that you type in the picture file name exactly as it appears on your computer; upper and lower case letters do matter in this case. If you don't, you won't be able to view your picture.



    You should now be able to view your picture.






    If your e-mail address ends with @frontiernet.net, @citlink.net, @newnorth.net, @gvni.com, to access the picture online, open your Internet browser and type the following into the address bar:

    http://www.frontiernet.net/~username/picturename.extension

    substituting the domain that matches the end of your e-mail address (for example, username@citlink.net would use www.citlink.net) and filling in the username space with your own username. (Your username is the part of your e-mail address before the @ symbol, and picturename.extension is the name of the picture.)

    If your e-mail address ends with @epix.net, to access the picture online, open your Internet browser and type the following into the address bar:

    http://home.epix.net/~username/picturename.extension

    filling in the username space with your own username. (Your username is the part of your e-mail address before the @ symbol, and picturename.extension is the name of the picture.)

    It is important that you type in the picture file name exactly as it appears on your computer; upper and lower case letters do matter in this case. If you don't, you won't be able to view your picture.



    You should now be able to view your picture.
