Step 1. Create your web page on your desktop. There are many easy to use html producers such as Microsoft Word. Name the file index.html

Step 2. Using any ftp client, such as fetch, create a folder called public_html in your home directory and place your index.html in it (Use ftp/fetch to transfer the files). You can use fetch

to create the folder or telnet to a UNIX server and use 'mkdir public_html' command.
