Tips for Managing Your Web Site
- Use default.htm as the 'default' file for your main directory (or any new directory for that matter!). The "default.htm" file is automatically loaded when your main URL is accessed. This is a great feature, because it allows visitors to visit your website at "www.yourcompany.com" rather than the more specific address of "www.yourcompany.com/index.html".
- You might want to create new directories under your main directory for special files that are distinctive, such as "images". This keeps your site well organized, and makes finding things that much easier!
- It is highly recommended that you organize the web site files that reside on your own hard disk (or floppy) in the exact same manner that they are organized on the server. If you do this correctly, you will have two exact copies of your web site files: one on your computer and one on the server. This will make your life much easier when you want to make changes to your site, and it will guarantee that you always have a back-up of your web files!
- You might want to consider putting all your filenames in Proper Case. NT is a case-friendly operation system that remembers the case of files and direcoties. Case however does not matter when calling a file. Using Proper Case makes the directories and files easier to read to your and your visitors. An example of Proper Case is "OfficialSiteofBusiness.com" where the prominent words begin with CAPS.
