I can't hear what I'm looking at.

When you signed on with them they should have sent you your login credentials.

No problem, I have some plants to attend to so we'll chat later. Maybe paintbrush ;) will jump in.

Log into your Hostgator account to get your FTP info.
From Eric's link:
FTP Host/Address: (your ip address or domain name)
FTP User: (cPanel/FTP user name)
FTP Password: (cPanel/FTP password)
Port: 21
Path/directory: (blank) >>> This is the Remote Folder field in VSD (see below)

Where this info goes in VSD (Publish > FTP Account Settings) – Here's an example:

I have to ask ?? you have a free hosting account with VSD

No FTP required instant upload by entering your log in and password

So why pay Hostgater for hosting when you can host for free, and easily ?

Viv I never knew that. I will look into that and see if that is something we might want to do. Our other site is also on an outside host. So are you saying right now I could just put this up on the web?

Have a look under publish > s drive settings

You put in your CC log in details and upload from VSD straight to your free Sdrive account

But first go to your CC account and choose a subdomain that suits your needs.

Once your loaded up and sorted you can point your own domain at it, and your done.

If you have not bought a domain name yet buy it through CC and it will be automatically set up for you.

Only small issue is that CC do not support email, so you need alternative email address to use.

1 free website with VSD up to three websites with webbie acct about $5.00 a month

Viv Thank you for that info but for this website we have decided to stay with Host Gator for other reasons. Our walkyourdogwithlove.com site is one we will look into moving over to CC.

Now to get the new site up and running.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
