Your departmental web site URL will always be www.humboldt.edu/sitename. Each of your sites will show up as a folder (link) inside your personal directory on the Central Web server and the files for your sites are stored in the site folder under public_html, for example /home/abc123/sitename/public_html.
You should always name your home page index.html, as this is the name web browsers look for when a user or a link points to your web site.
Note: The tilde (~) is no longer used in site names on the Central Web server. Please update any documents (printed and/or electronic) and web pages that include your old URL to reflect the new site name and address as soon as possible.

Launch your SFTP software, log into the web server, and do the following:
Windows users can also upload files and folders and set permissions using Network Folders. To upload files and folders, connect to your HSU Network Folder and simply drag and drop them into the public_html directory. By default, these documents should be universally-readable. In the event that permissions need to be changed to universally-readable, do the following:
