Press 'Windows-X' to open the power user menu, and select 'Command Prompt' from the list. Pinging a server doesn't require administrator access, so you can ping Minecraft servers from any user account on your computer.
Use the ping command, followed by the server's address. An example would look like this:ping example.minecraftserver.comThe ping may take a second or two to complete, at which point the screen will display several reply results from the ping test.
Look for the average time; it should be the last piece of information displayed on the screen. The average represents the most likely ping time for your server latency, measured in milliseconds. While it may not be reflective of your exact latency at any given time while connected, it's a solid measure of what you can expect.
Navigate to the website on which you want to upload your video file that is over 200 MB in size. YouTube and Flickr both allow videos with file sizes of 200 MB, but you need to create a new account or use an existing account. To upload a video file of 200 MB to Flickr you need to purchase a Pro account; YouTube allows file sizes up to 2 GB. You can also visit free file hosting sites, such as YourFileLink to upload a video.
Click the link or button that allows you to upload the video. A dialog box will open asking you to select the video on your computer that you want to upload.
Choose the video that you want to upload in the dialog box. Once you have chosen the video, the upload process will start, and will complete in some time depending on your Internet speed and availability of free servers on the website on which you are uploading the video.
Purchase a domain name from a registrar. By purchasing a domain name, you will register it as your own and be able to control where the domain resides. There are many registrars available such as GoDaddy, Register.com, Enom, Network Solutions and Dream Host, to name a few. Many registrars also provide web hosting and vice versa. Domain names typically cost between $2.00 to $10.00. per year, as of 2010. '.com' is the most expensive; '.net,' .org,' and '.info' are progressively less expensive.
Open a shared hosting account with a web host. If your website becomes popular, you can upgrade to a VSP or dedicated server at any time. Depending on the registrar you purchase your domain from, you may be able to also host with them. Web hosts typically charge on per month basis and offer options for monthly and yearly payment options. Some of the web hosts available are GoDaddy, DreamHost, HostMonster and HostGator.
Redirect your domain's nameservers, also referred to as 'DNS,' to the IP address of your web host's nameservers. Your domain will have two nameservers, 'Nameserver 1' and 'Nameserver 2.' Your web host will provide you with an address for each nameserver. The addresses will look like, 'ns1.your-host.com' and 'ns2.your-host.com.' You will need to refer to your web host/registrar for the specific address and instructions on how to redirect your domain's nameservers.
Upload the files for your web pages. Log in to the cPanel on your hosting account and go to the 'File Manager.' Click on your domain name to be taken to the root folder for its directory. Upload the index.html file and other associated files for your website. You may also choose to use your host's script installer to install a website automatically for you, which will vary in procedure from host to host.
Wait at least 24 hours for the change to take effect. Once the redirection of the nameservers has completed, your domain name will now be the URL of your web page. For example, by typing 'http://your-domain-name.com' you will be taken to your web page.

This is your site's Web address, which is a unique name preceded by 'www.' and followed by a domain, such as '.com,' '.org' or '.net.' You usually pay an annual fee of between $5 and $20 to retain a domain name.
Purchase the services of a Web host, such as GoDaddy.com, Hostgator.com or Asmallorange.com. This gives you the storage space and bandwidth to put your site on the Web and receive visitors. Your provider will give you instructions for attaching your domain name to your hosting account.
Design your website with paid software such as Microsoft Expression Web, Adobe Dreamweaver or Web Studio. You may also use a free site-building program that comes with your hosting service. You may also build your site with a free program, such as Yahoo! SiteBuilder, WordPress or Google Sites. Most programs have a built-in wizard that takes you step-by-step through the design process. Several online programs also offer free (but limited) hosting and a Web address.
Add content. Base each page around a handful of relevant keywords, mentioning them a few times on each page. Keywords help search engines recognize your site's relevance to a given topic and direct readers to your site.
Upload your site to the Web. Your hosting provider will offer specific instructions for uploading your design files through a control panel. For online programs such as WordPress.com and Google Sites, click 'Save' or 'Publish.'
Log in to your hosting account or to the dashboard of your online site-building program to manage and update files, pages and posts.

Obtain Web hosting space with FTP (file transfer protocol) so that you’ll have somewhere to upload the information. This can be done by purchasing a domain name and Web hosting, or by finding a company that offers free Web space. If you choose to purchase hosting, you won’t be able to access it without buying a domain name.
Log in to your FTP account. If you are using a free or paid host, then log in to the control panel and access the FTP section. This may be also be labeled as 'Upload Files' if you are using free hosting. If you have paid hosting and an FTP program on your computer, you can use that instead. You’ll have to use your FTP username and password in order to use an external program. Your host will give you this information after you sign up.
Find the information you want to upload on your computer. Once logged into FTP either via the Web panel or via an FTP program on your computer, you should be looking at a split screen. One side represents the files and folders on your computer, while the other side represents the files and folders that are part of your Web hosting account. Select the files you want to upload by browsing through the files and folders on your computer. Next click 'Transfer.” You have now uploaded the information to the Web.
View the information. Now that you have uploaded the files, it’s a good idea to make sure the upload is working properly. Open the Web browser and type in the URL of the files you uploaded. For example, if you uploaded stocks.pdf to yourdomain.com, you would type www.yourdomain.com/stocks.pdf. If you are using a free host then you have to type in the domain and folder name of whatever service you are using. For example, www.freehostingexample.com/yourusername/stocks.pdf
Navigate to Freewebs.com and click on the 'Sign Up' button at the top of the screen. On the next page, choose a user name and fill in all your personal information. The user name will be included in the URL of your Freewebs website, so be sure to use one that reflects the intended use of the website.
Scroll down to the section of the Freewebs page labeled 'Select a Template for your Site.' To the right of that, there is a link reading 'Use Advanced (HTML) Mode'--click that link. Then, input the CAPTCHA words in the graphic box, read the terms of service and click the 'I Agree' button. Then, click 'Create My Site' to continue.
Select the Freewebs website hosting package you want on the next screen and click the 'Select' button beneath it. If you intend to pay for the ad-free or advanced hosting, make payment as directed. When done, you will be taken to your personal website account page. To begin creating your website with HTML code, click on the blue 'Edit My Site' button.
Create the home page of your Freewebs website by clicking on the 'Edit' button next to the file 'index.htm.' The edit button looks like a paper and pencil. Freewebs provides some basic HTML code to get you started. It is a good idea to open your website in another window or tab to look at while you are working.
Change the HTML title tag to the text you want displayed in the browser bar when your website is loaded. This should include the title and description of your website and keywords that people will search for. Within the
tags on the Freewebs edit page, you may input meta tags such as keywords, description and author information. If you are using a cascading style sheet (CSS) to design your website, include the HTML code for it (
is the correct HTML code to include a CSS file). The 'style.css' should be the name of the CSS file itself. If you are using a CSS file for your Freewebs website, you must upload the file to your account.
Copy and paste the HTML from a template found on another web design website if you found or bought one you like. If you are not using a template, you must change the HTML code on Freewebs by editing the page files. The web page editor gives you a basic WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) editor at the top of the screen. You can change font size, style, color, make text bold or italics and insert hyperlinks and images with ease.
Input your own HTML code using the standard tags and attributes if you do not want to use the WYSIWYG editor. Use and tags for large headings and sub-headings of diminishing size. All basic text paragraphs should be bound by HTML tags. Images can be inserted with the HTML code. All image files must be uploaded to the Freewebs account before including them. Click on the green 'Images' button on the account page and upload the graphic files there.
Complete the HTML code for your Freewebs website index file, or home page, and click the 'Save' button at the top left side of the screen. It looks like a small, blue computer disk. The Freewebs account page will load again. If you want more than one page to your website, click the blue 'add a page' link and repeat the steps to create your own website with HTML code.
Find a website that will allow you to get URLs for your MP3s. A few websites that offer this service for free are Mailbox Drive, File Den, and MP3 Upload.
