If you decide to upload your messages and/or faxes you will be able to access them while online by double clicking on the associated icon on your web page.
Web Hosting with FTP (File Transfer Protocol) required
To make use of this function you will require a web site domain name and a hosting service that allows for FTP file transfer. Depending on your internet service provider you may or may not have this already. If you do not have these services you will need to get them in order to use this particular function of CallClerk. Domain name registration and Hosting services can be purchased separately from different providers or you can get them together as a package. These services do no come bundled with CallClerk.
One provider that offers both Domain Name Registration and Hosting Services as bundled package is LunarPages.
You can click on the link above or the banner to the right to get more information on the Services and Costs offered by Lunar Pages.
CallClerk has been hosted by Lunarpages since April 2004, their service and support are excellent.
A word about Privacy (Password protecting your web page)
Posting a list of your calls, messages and faxes on the internet may lead to privacy issues for some.
Accordingly it is important to note that with some hosting services, such as LunarPages, you can add password protection to prevent your web page from being generally viewed by everyone. If you desire this level of protection you should check with your hosting provider to see if they offer it. How to set it up with Lunar Pages is explained below.
Additionally, the web page that CallClerk builds for you by default has embedded in it an instruction to web site search engines robots telling them not to index the page. Accordingly even if you choose not to password protect access to your web page this feature will prevent most search engines from indexing your web page.
1: the web page address must end with /history.html or /directory.html
2. if your web site is being hosted by a web site hosting company, such as Lunarpages, the web site address should begin with http://
3: if your web site is an internal site, you should enter the drive, path and file name (instead of the http://), as an example:
Doing this will trigger CallClerk to copy the files via your network as opposed to FTPing them.
4: When you click the test button your directory and history web pages will be uploaded and CallClerk will open the web page that you specify in the Web Page address text box.
