Personal Home Page Program FTP Procedures
GeoCities has a new utility designed to remove all the problems from the FTP process. All you need is Netscape 2.0 or greater and you can use our EZ File Upload Utility to transfer files directly from your computer to your GeoCities directory.
Although you can still use the conventions described below, we're confident that you'll love this new process so much, you'll never use your old FTP utility again.
Follow these procedures for submitting HTML, GIF, JPG, and other files for your free Personal Home Page. If you are unfamiliar with HTML, you can create your page using our easy to use Home Page Editor.
If you still have questions after reading these pages, please see our new FAQ List. There is an entire section devoted to transferring your files to us via FTP.
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, a way of sending files across the internet. It is not something that you can do with most Web Browsers. Netscape 2.0 does allow you to upload files, but will not allow you to rename them with the long filenames that you'll need here. You can use Netscape for this process, however, if you are able to save the files on your computer with the long names necessary (described below).
