UC San Diego students have server space to publish a personal website.
You can either log into the server and build your website there, or you can use a text editor on your computer.
There are many ways to do this—here are a few ideas:
Download your favorite SFTP client and use the following to access your web space:
Open a Terminal window and enter the following command:
scp file.html email@example.com:~username/public_html
If you plan on uploading a folder, don't forget to use the recursive flag:
scp -r folder firstname.lastname@example.org:~username/public_html
Log into our Home Page Setup Tool and check the box reading Allow others to see documents in public_html.
If you ever want to change your permissions to prevent anyone from seeing your web page, use the tool again and select Return to "no-risk" permissions.
Once you have completed these steps, you may view your site at:
When our friend Ben completes these steps on acsweb, he will find his site here:
