FTP trouble putting up site! HELP!


#1

I purchased my domain on Monday and at first I was using SmartFTP, now I switched to WS_FTP. But for whatever the reason, I cannot seem to upload my files. What am I doing wrong?

What is my server host name?
What is my user ID?

Can someone please give me a rundown of what’s going on? I feel like I shelled out $9.95 for nothing.

Thanks.

Your hostname is simply your domain name. Your FTP user name and password should have been supplied to you in your Welcome email, but can also be found here.

Do you have a hosting plan in DH? If you don’t have hosting plan, you can’t upload files because there is no server space for you.

I think you are referring the settings in FTP. THe host name is www.yourdomain.com

You can check user ID who controls the domain via DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains You should see a list of domain you own with the associated user IDs.

So I need to have a hosting plan added on top of the $9.95 I paid??

You do not have a hosting plan. You need to purchase a hosting plan to host your domain.

Yes. The $9.95 you paid is for one year’s registration of a domain, not hosting - hosting is a different thing altogether. With every hosting plans, you get at least one “free” domain registration, but there is no “free hosting” with a domain registration. :wink:

Yep, the $9.95 only registers the name, but doesn’t get you a place to host your domain. DreamHost provides several services - Domain Registration, Domain Hosting, then other stuff that gets piled on top of Domain Hosting.
