A faculty Web page is used for classroom-related purposes only. Examples of faculty Web pages content include instructor homepages, teaching philosophies, syllabi, links to online classes, office hours, etc.
Web Services recommends using TMCC's Google Sites as a quick and easy solution for creating a Faculty Web page. However, TMCC also offers Web space and secure FTP access for those that wish to publish their own custom HTML pages.
If you have opted for this latter choice, continue reading about how to access and publish to your Web hosting account.
Secure FTP (sFTP) Access
Reminder: The following information is meant only for faculty who are not using Google Sites for their faculty Web pages.
If you already have TMCC faculty website hosting account set up, please read the following information on how to access your account using secure FTP (sFTP). If you don't have a hosting account yet, please first read the TMCC website publishing procedures.
Web Client Access
Once you have been contacted that your Web hosting account has been created, you can publish and access your website files via a secure FTP thin client at https://sftp2.tmcc.edu/thinclient/
Your login credentials to access your account via sFTP are as follows:
Username: Your existing network username AND append @faculty to it (example: jdoe@faculty)
Password: Your existing network password
Once logged on to the sFTP thin client, you can upload and download files easily using a simple Web interface.
Secure FTP Software Alternative
You can also access your faculty website using other methods, such as secure FTP client/software like Dreamweaver, FireFTP or Filezilla. This is not a complete list, just be sure your client/software supports secure FTP.
If you decide to go this route, the secure FTP host/path/address needed for your login credentials is:
FTP Host/Path/Address: sftp2.tmcc.edu
Note: Your username and password credentials are the same as previously mentioned. Depending on what sFTP client/software you use, other settings may be required to determine the secure connection.
Once connected, you should have full sFTP access to your faculty website to upload/download files.
Your TMCC website address, or URL, that you will want to promote for your Web hosting account is usually: http://faculty.tmcc.edu/yourusername

We've put together some documentation to assist you with specific FTP software setups.
