Today’s Agenda • Learn about uploading your site • Meet in small groups to share work • Present
Uploading Your Site • Free hosting options: • awardspace.com—requires your name and address, so ask your parents first • Webs.com – 7 day delay on using their FTP feature • Tripod.com Google and ask your friends for recommendations! Look for FTP access
Working with a hosting site • Most offer FTP over a web browser • Look for File Manager or Upload Files options • Paid hosting • May have to setup a FTP account • Login, password, and usually your domain name • Then you can use a FTP program like Filezilla or WS_FTP, etc.

Group Activity Same Groups as yesterday! Each group uses ONE computer. One presenter, one computer. No other computers in use!
Your Assignment… • Take turns presenting your site to the group • What pages did you create • Why did you chose the color scheme you did? • Why does your navigation structure work for you? • What other pages do you need to create? • Offer constructive criticism of the site • Can you find what you are looking for? • Can you read it well? • Do you have any questions not answered on site? • When your group is done, work on your site.
