If you are unable to find the answer to your question please try our other support site here:
To connect to your hosting account you will need the following pieces of information from your Welcome email:
Your User Name........(case sensitive)
Web Directories /tmp - This directory holds your access log files - Mail area for your domain (no need to touch
this!) /public_html - same as the WWW folder : /public_ftp - Files for your anonymous FTP /www - same as the public_html folder
- This directory holds your access log files
- Mail area for your domain (no need to touch this!)
- same as the WWW folder :
- Files for your anonymous FTP
- same as the public_html folder
When you upload your site to the Internet, you will want to make sure that you name your home page index.html, as this is how our system will recognize your page.
Other default pages are feasible (index.htm, default.htm, index.phtml), but the default "Welcome" page that comes with every new account is named index.html, and will not be replaced unless it is specifically deleted or overwritten by your own index.html.
When you first FTP into your account, you'll be taken to your "Home" directory. Don't confuse this with your "web directory." The home directory is "not" accessible to the World Wide Web; it's a private directory where critical system files reside. The /public_html or /www directory is where web accessible files are placed.
As soon as a file is uploaded to the web server, it is available for all to see. If, after uploading a file, you are still unable to see the updated file via your browser, try hitting the "Refresh" or "Reload" button. Some browsers - particularly Netscape - have very tenacious "caches" - places where pages are temporarily stored on your computer. You may need to manually empty your browser cache to see a new or updated page on your site.
