typed *exactly* as it appears here: cutting and pasting is a good
idea … )
When you look in your directory, you’ll see a subdirectory called
‘public_html’. Any HTML or GIF file uploaded to that subdirectory
will immediately be visible to the whole Web at:
Your account has been configured with the amount of disk space
that you requested: if you need more, contact us and arrangements
can be made.
There are only three rules that apply to personal space at RootsWeb:
(1) Upload no copyrighted material, except with permission.
(2) The material must be generally of genealogical interest
and directly related to the genealogy of the account
owner. (Accounts may not be ‘subdivided’ and resold.)
(3) Upload no commercial material.
The ‘no commercial material’ rule is flexible, especially in the
case of Genealogical Societies. For gensocs, if you like then go
ahead and sell memberships, books, and research services. All that
RootsWeb asks is if you sell more than a few hundred dollars a
year through RootsWeb, please donate 5% of your sales to RootsWeb to
help us cover the cost of our servers. BTW, RootsWeb is a friendly
place and we won’t audit your books; commercial activities here are
on the honor system.
