Guidelines

  • All websites have a file-size limit. Please do not use this resource as storage.
  • All website content can and will be removed if found to have unauthorized content.

  • TROUBLESHOOTING

    • We do not offer direct support or assistance with homework.
    • If your site is not being created after activating it, and waiting 24 hours, contact us for assistance.
    • If you are a Student Organization, have your proctor send us an e-mail for creation.
    • You must use a campus computer to upload file content.
    • Frequently Asked Questions
      • My website is showing up as "Page Cannot Be Displayed" or "404 Not Found": All websites must have an index.html file in the root directory of your folder for the website to display. Otherwise, you need to specify the specific file in the URL.
      • I uploaded an index.html file but still can't get the site to load: Make sure you are able to enable file name extensions on any computer you upload files from or else you may not be uploading the right type of files. For example, you may be uploading index.html.html instead of index.html. If this is the case, your URL would be http://student.fgcu.edu/YOURUSERID/index.html.html. You can remove the extra extension if you've enabled file extensions, as linked previously.
      • Additional tip: Make sure you are typing the full URL of your site and files or else the website will not load. For example, http://student.fgcu.edu/YOURUSERID/FILE.HTML
