Publishing with Front Page

Overview:

Front page includes a built-in FTP protocol to upload your pages into your web host's Internet server.  Before front page came along, a web publisher needed to learn how to use an FTP (file transfer protocol) program to upload pages into the Internet.  Now publishing is one button, provided you know your web host's upload instructions.  For Geocities, it is simply ftp://ftp.geocities.com.

Another big topic related to front page and publishing is the Front Page Server Extensions.  These are upgrades needed to be added to a web host in order to fully support a front page web.  These extensions must be purchased from Microsoft and then installed onto the web server.  If the web server is a Front Page Extended server, then you have even more power for publishing with front page.  Web sites on these servers will allow all the "COOL" front page  components to be fully operational.  Plus publishing is much more efficient.  The final plus is that you can open your web site from the Internet and work "LIVE" on your site eliminating the entire need for publishing!  Now that is very nice.

Recommendation:
Locate a web host that is fully Front Page Extended and publish your web pages there.  We use GeoCities because it is free, easy, and we have used it for several years.
