chmodpart, if you want your page to be publicly accessible.
As it stands, your web page is just a generic placeholder. You need to edit the file
index.html to make it into a real web page. The main principle at work is: whatever file you cook up and save as
index.html in your
public_html directory, that's what will appear when anyone looks you up on the web.
There are two main options for customizing your webpage:
The internet is graced by a billion website design tutorials. At the time of writing, Mozilla's documentation is perhaps the best of them.
Another good option is to use some website-hosting application and just have your math URL redirect users. Some good options include
www.math.ucdavis.edu/~yourusername to your real website, the
index.html file in
public_html should be the file
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <!-- HTML meta URL redirect --> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://my.real.website.com/"> </head> <body> </body> </html>
A good website is an accessible one. Some ways to promote accessibility are pretty intuitive, e.g.
Other aspects of accessibility would be pretty hard to guess if you weren't familiar with the situation. e.g.
<p> </p>tags instead of
</br>ones to break up lines.
See Mozilla's Accessibility Guide for many practical tutorials and guidelines on this topic.
