Web I: Friday’s Online Class


Above is a link to my YouTube playlists that I have created for the Friday’s section of ADV2540 Section7219. It is a compilation of some of the topics which are covered in week 3 class. Watch the cPanel tutorials and the Dreamweaver tutorials.

Watch the videos, and do the following for homework:

  1. Create an email account associated with your portfolio site.
  2. Set up a site in Dreamweaver that is for your portfolio site.
  3. Test it to ensure that you can connect to the server.

In order to do this you must purchase a domain and hosting from an internet service provider. If you have used Kionic.com as recommended, then you will need to have the following:

  • ftp hostname
  • username
  • password

The ftp host name will be “www.yourdomain.com” where yourdomain is the url which you purchased. The username/password will be the same as your account username/password.

There are a couple of things that you should know in advance: the “Root Directory” setting when setting up the server will be “public_html/”.  The you also need to click on the “more options” and select “Use Passive FTP”.  Then when you hit “TEST” you should get a connected response.
