 - Host name: the host/computer name of the web server, (ie. which will run the website).

 - Port Number: this should be set automatically for you, unless you have specified a specific port

 - Root directory: the root folder/directory on the above web server for storing all webpages.

 

3. On this tab you must also specify which type of pages you want to produce - ASP or PHP

 

4. On the Project tab, type the image folder name in the Images Folder: ..Web pages text box. This folder will  be created under the root directory when saving webpages.

Hint:  Host names and directory names will change from host to host. If you are using a commercial hosting service, your hosting company should provide you with the required information regarding how to set up publishing.  If you are working on a private host, then your system administrator should have the necessary information for you.
