What Is Object Path Hosting?

    An object path is a collection of specific files, sorted into specific folders, and all placed on an Internet server. The ActiveWorlds VR browser will access these files using the HTTP protocol, so the files and folders must reside on a web server. Other files can go in these folders, and other folders can exist, but the extraneous files and folders will be ignored by the AW VR browser. Being on a web server, these files and folders are also accessible with any web browser, this may not be what you intend.

    Therefore, object path hosting is putting specific files and folders on a web server so that they are accessable from the Internet.
