How do I create a website?

All SEAS accounts include space for a personal website available at a special URL:

https://www.seas.upenn.edu/~username/

Where username is replaced with the account name.

These files are served from the html directory within the home directory of the SEAS account.

Use a text editor or web authoring tool to create your web pages, then transfer them to the html directory in your SEAS account.

A good tutorial for learning HTML is available at w3schools.

The file permissions must be set correctly for your web pages to be viewable. See this article for more help on setting your HTML file permissions.

If you'd like, add your site to the Penn Engineering Personal Home Page List or include it in your Penn Directory profile.
