FTP/WEB INSTRUCTIONS FOR TIER 1 ACCOUNTS
Chesapeake.Net Tier 1 accounts come standard with 5 MB of web storage space. To activate this storage area, please complete this online form . The storage space is accessible only to the primary email user name and password , so keep this in mind if you have more than one email account with Chesapeake.Net .
Your web site address is: http://www.chesapeake.net/~username
(Again, where "username" is the email user name of the primary Tier 1 email account)
To upload files to this web address you will need an FTP client program, such as CuteFTP or any of the clients listed on the CWS Applications page (we recommend CuteFTP 3.0, but any client listed on CWS will work). Once you have downloaded and installed an FTP client, you will need to configure it to connect to Chesapeake.Net .
Please note the FrontPage Server Extensions are NOT available to Tier 1 customers.
The connection settings you will need to enter into your FTP program:
- Host Address: www.chesapeake.net
- User ID: FTP username (See Account Setup Information sheet)
- Password: FTP password (See Account Setup Information sheet)
- Initial Remote Directory: public_html
For instance, in CuteFTP 3.0, you would enter these settings like this:
- First, click the Site Manger Button on the main button bar, as shown below.
- Next, click the "Add site" button in the FTP Site Manager window.
- Finally, enter all of the information as shown below, and click "OK."
Please Note: Only files stored in the "public_html" subdirectory of your Chesapeake.Net account are visible via your web site address. If this subdirectory does not exist in your root directory, create it manually with your FTP client. If you are unsure how to create this directory using your FTP program, consult your client's online help, or contact Technical Support.
Directory names are case sensitive, and Tier 1 accounts have a 5 MB limit on the amount of data they can store in their Chesapeake.Net accounts.
Tier 1 users are not permitted to use CGI scripts of any kind on their personal web page, and there is a 100 MB limit on the amount of bandwidth your site can use. If your site transmits any more than 100 MB per month, $10 per each additional 100 MB will be charged to your account.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further information or assistance with yourChesapeake.Net e-mail service, or call our Technical Support staff at 1-877-764-4638.
