The Personal Web Space provided by CamTel.Net/Cameron Telephone Company is an unmanaged area. Cameron Telephone Company/CamTel.Net will not be providing technical support for this area beyond the scope as defined below. Users who have purchased the Web Space package will receive 5 megabytes of Personal Web Space with a limit of 250 megabytes of file transfers (extra space and transfer are available at an additional charge). We ask that you refrain from posting sexually explicit material to your Web Space. Offenders may lose Web Space privileges and/or all other Internet services at the discretion of CamTel.Net/Cameron Telephone Company. Other restrictions and limitations may apply.

Checklist for User Web Page Setup
Items Needed:

  • A separate Web Space package (contact customer service department to order).
  • A Web Publishing program to create and modify your Web Pages. Web Pages, or HTML pages, are actually text files that contain instructions that tell your browser what to do. Being text files, they can be edited with any text editor (such as Windows Notepad or DOS's edit) by an experienced HTML programmer. For the beginner there are many WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Web Publishing Packages available. There are commercially available ones that you can mail order or pick up at your local software store and there are, also, shareware ones that you can download from various download sites. Many of the Web Publishing Packages that are available come with FTP clients for the transferring of files between your local computer and your Web Space on the webserver. If you acquire one of the previously mentioned packages that includes an FTP client, you do not need to acquire an FTP program as mentioned below.
  • An FTP program to transfer the files in your computer to your Personal Web Space. Here we have included instructions specific to Cute FTP.

  • Click here to download CuteFTP (you may use any FTP program).
  • The Web Pages that you will create.

Using CuteFTP to access your Personal Web Space.

Step One - Connecting to your user directory

Click on the FTP icon. If the Sites Managers windows appears, click on the Exit button. Select Quick Connect.

Under Host address enter user.camtel.net. Enter your login name and password into the appropriate boxes. Select Normal Login type and Auto-detect Transfer type, then click on "OK" to gain access to your Personal Web Space. When you login to the server you will always start in the same directory. This directory is named the same as your login name and will henceforth be referred to as your user directory.


Step Two - Uploading your Web Page

FTP your web page contents to your user directory. This is accomplished by clicking on the empty left hand pane of the window. This left-hand pane represents your local machine (your computer) while the right-hand pane represents the remote machine (our Internet server). Now click on Ftp from the menu and select Change dir. Type in the letter of the drive where your web pages are stored on your local machine and press Enter. Finally navigate your local drive to find the directory where your web pages are stored. Your screen should look similar to the example.

WARNING!!! WHEN YOU COPY FILES UP TO THE WEBSERVER, YOU WILL OVERWRITE ANY FILES OF THE SAME NAME. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP COPY OF THESE FILES. Highlight all the files to be moved to your Personal Web Space, click on Ftp, and then select Upload. This will copy all the highlighted files from your hard drive to your user directory (your Personal Web Space on Camtel.Net). All of the highlighted files in this directory will be published under the following URL:

http://user.camtel.net/johndoe where johndoe is replaced by your user name.
