    You need to have an index.htm. That will be your sites starting point.

    I created my first web page using Microsoft FrontPage, if you have Microsoft Office you can install it. Frontpage has an easy to follow tutourial and it will upload your webpage for you. If I can do it anybody can.:)

    WS_FTP is the program that you're going to use to upload your webpage to the space that has been made available to you by your ISP. As far as creating your webpage is concerned, that's a whole different story. You need software such as FrontPage, as Jim stated, to create your page. If you know HTML really well, you can actually use Notepad to create a basic webpage, but I don't advise that.
    If it's just the FTP program that you're worried about using, all you should need is an address and a user/pass (from your ISP) that you enter into the program. That information will connect you to your space, and you upload the pages and images for the site using the program. I'm sure you have more questions, but this is some of the basic info you might need to know.

    No, I believe that Jim is right in that FrontPage will upload the concent for you.

    Hi Alloy25, check your ISP's Web Site. It should give an uplift address to use when connecting to your Web Access with them. The password and user name are generally those that you already use to access your ISP.
