NOTE: If your account is a Virtual IP Plan,
please remember that your domain name will need to be activated on our nameservers before

Basic FrontPage Instructions
Login: Choose "Open
FrontPage Web" from the File Menu in FrontPage Explorer. It will ask you for a Web
Server of File Location. Enter yourdomain.com and
then "list webs". Next, you will need to select
(double-click) the root web. The requested login and password will be the same as your FTP
supplies you with two separate interfaces. The FrontPage explorer is used to manage
the files within your web site. If you open a file in your web site another program
called FrontPage Editor will open. When you are connected to your web then all
changes made to any file you edit will be saved to your web.
*Note: Although the software documentation states that you can create the site on your
computer and then "publish" it to the web server, we do not recommend this.
Many times publishing to the server from your computer will loose the
Interactive web bots features that you may have setup when designing your site on your
local computer. We recommend that you create your entire site by being
connected to your web and saving directly to the server. To move files already
created on your web site use the Import command found under the File menu within FrontPage
Explorer to select the files to import to the server. This is by far the best method
for moving files from your hard drive to the server.
Additional support documents and complete
usage instructions can be found at Microsoft's official FrontPage Home Page.

Staff can not assist in client side FrontPage configuration, please check with Microsoft's Technical Support documents)
