Much of the power of FrontPage is available only when you group your pages into a web. FrontPage can then add some complex features and can do a lot of site management for you .
A web can be disk-based (contained one of your local disks), or server-based (contained on a web server). A web server is a computer that feeds web pages and files to the Internet. The server must have special software called FrontPage extensions to run some of FrontPage's useful special features.
A web that is contained in another web is called a subweb. It is useful have subwebs for the parts of the site that are updated by different people, or that are for different departments, or that are about different subjects. You can set different permissions so that only the right people can make changes.
Your own computer can act as a web server itself, even if you do not use it to actually send out your web pages.
To use your local server, you must save your webs to the folder that your server software expects. FrontPage may have installed Microsoft Personal Web Server for you with you installed FrontPage. (Only for Windows 9x/NT) The default folder is c:\wwwroot. If you are on a network, ask your network administrator if there is a web server on the network you can use for testing.

When your webs are in the web server's folders, you can
use localhost as the name of the server. In the
browser's Address box you would type, for example,

Start with: , FrontPage is closed.
You would normally want to create your web on your hard disk in the localhost's home folder. For a whole class or more to do this might get really confusing. Too many "Hectors" running around!
For these lessons you will work with a disk-based web on your floppy disk. If you are working on your own computer, by all means, put your disk in the localhost folder! Just remember to adapt the directions for the location that you use.
Create an Empty Web
Import File: Dialog
To include an existing file in the new web you must import it.
Now you are ready to continue developing your web site for Hector Chavez. The rest of your work will be inside the web.
