There is a $11/month hosting fee for personal or business home
pages up to 5Mb in size. This is offset by up to $11/month (free)
connect time for active account users. Additional disk space is
available at $11 per extra 10Mb or part thereof per month.
May be any number of HTML files, GIF or JPEG images, to a combined
total of 5Mb or less disk space at no extra charge. Additional
space is available if required, but will attract additional charges
(see above). Currently, there are no charges for "hits" to your
page(s), although we reserve the right to change this policy (in
which case people will be advised before the introduction of any
We provide comprehensive analysis with "full domain" hosting.
If you need to restrict access to your pages to (or from) specific domains
contact the SysAdmin.
Please include the following code at the bottom of your page(s):

Once you have created your home page(s),
you need to upload your page(s) to our server. To do this, you
will need an FTP agent. If you don't have one, we have
Macintosh versions available.
- Using your FTP client, log in to our server www.albury.net.au,
using the userid and password we provided to you
on your User Account Configuration sheet.
If you are uploading to your own domain hosted with us, instead
of using www.albury.net.au, use your domain, eg www.yourdomain.com.au
- Create a directory called public_html
This must be in lower case and exactly as above.
The directory may already exist if we host your domain,
or if you have previously had a web-page hosted here.
- Change into the public_html directory (folder) and upload your file(s).
This includes ALL html, htm, jpg, gif and any other files you use.
Note: As our servers run Unix, everything is CASE SENSITIVE.
This means that Photo.jpg and photo.jpg are DIFFERENT.
Be aware of this, because this is the most common cause of problems with new websites.
- Your main page should be called index.html, although our
server will use index.htm if the preferred file does not exist.
The file must be in all lower case.
- Logout/close the FTP connection, run your browser and CHECK
At this time, it won't be on the users home page list, so
you will need to refer to it explicitly, for example, if your
userid is johndoe, go to: http://www.albury.net.au/~johndoe
Check EVERYTHING works, properly. Ideally, check with different browsers too.
If you feel adventurous, use a validation service for extra kudos!
- At about 2am daily, our system re-indexes all listed websites.
If you have uploaded your website properly, it will be checked for
a <TITLE> tag, which will be used as the description, and shown
on our Clients and Subscribers Websites index.
If you do NOT want your site listed, create a file called "exclude.me"
in your public_html directory, and our indexing will ignore your site.
- You may also wish to submit your URL(s) to some search engines.
There are services which allow you to submit to multiple search engines
at once, such as Submit-It,
or you can visit your preferred search engines and submit manually.
Most seach sites have a submit page, eg Google
Please note: Search Engines may take up to three months
to process submissions.
