How do I add a squeeze page to my domain?

12 replies
I want to put up a squeeze page off my main domain eg. mydomain.com/squeezepage. How do I go about doing this
using filezilla? I already have the squeeze page made up, I just
need to know where I should put the html file in order for the page to display without putting it on it's own domain. Does that make sense?

    You can either put the file at the root of the web directory (ie, where all the other html files are) or in a subdirectory. If putting it at the root give it a name like squeezepage.html or something else that doesn't already exist. Alternatively, create a new folder under the root directory and drop the file there. I think the first option is better, IMO.

    use any ftp program.

    1- Login using your website ftp details
    2- Make a new folder named"squeezepage"
    3- Upload all the files in that folder
    4- open mydomain.com/squeezepage and you will be able to see it

    If you are using your main username and password to login to FTP then you first have to browse "public_html" folder and then your domain name "mydomain.com" and then make a folder inside it.

    Pm me if you need more help regarding it. Would be glad to help

    In your case, you simply create a folder named squeezepage,
    then move your squeeze page files into that folder.

    That's it.

    Just make a folder called squeezepage. Then drop your squeeze page which you already made and all images in there. Then when someone goes to mydomain.com/squeezepage they will see your squeeze page.

    Note you need to name your squeeze page index.htm for it to work

    yes ray777 is right. either rename it index.htm, index.html or index.php. All 3 will work

    You have me confused here. If you have a html page created from your html editor isn't it just a matter of saving and naming that page and then "publishing" from there? Of if you used a squeezepage software (I sometimes do) just copy and paste the given code and place it in your html editor page and publish.
    You might take a look at these videos. They are just sooo easy to follow.

    Well that's easy if you have cpanel with FTP support then you can upload it using your ftp programs, here is one > FileZilla - Client Download

    Then login to your ftp account, upload the squeeze page flles to your /public_html directory or you can create new directory and put the files there.

      Hey everyone - I've just been reading this thread because I though it might solve an FTP issue I have been having. It half solved it, BUT:

      I have a folder which contains, squeeze page, thank you page, and an images folder.

      I uploaded this to the new directory I created, then went to test everything.

      Everything works beautifully EXCEPT the images are not there on the squeeze page and the thank you page. I can click on the space where the image should be and my report dowloads like it is supposed to but there are no images.

      Does anyone have any idea why they won't show up? Have I missed something crucial?

      Thanks a million

        This is because:

        a) you did not upload the images
        b) the images are in another folder than links in the pages point to

        Ad a)

        Your folder with the pages should look like this (more or less)
        page1.html
        page2.html
        page3.html
        /images ==> folder with images

        If you haven't uploaded the images folder, the images will not show.

        Ad b (and a - cont.)

        If you have uploaded your images, now look into your pages and find the first "<img src=" string.

        if it reads: <img src="images/picture1.jpg"> and you don't have the 'images' folder in your pages' folder, upload the images.

        if you have the folder with images, but it is not in the pages' folder, you have to edit all instances of <img src with absolute paths:

        <img src="http://mydomainname.com/images-folder-name/picture-name.jpg">

        Another possibility: if neither of the above is the case, try to put / at the end of each <img src pharse, just before the ">" sign.

        <img src="url to the image" />

        Any of these should solve your problem.

          If you use Hostgator, just contact them via their live chat. Their technicians are very helpful.

          I'm not familiar with other hosts, but I'm sure they also have customer service reps that can help.
