    Getting website online

    skives
      I have made my website in dreamweaver 8 and I have my hosting through Godaddy.com. I can't seem to get it online though. Every time I try to upload it says error cannot connect to ftp sever. I have put the entire folder that contains the files of my website onto the ftp sever from godaddy's online thing they have but when I type in www.maddenballerz.com it is just blank. Does anyone know what to do? Has anyone used godaddy to host a site? Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks,
      John

          I ran from Godaddy when one of my clients sign up with them, HOWEVER, they should have provided you ftp instructions when you signed up. If you did your Site Definition in DW correctly AND the Test Connection worked, the DW should be able to upload your fires correctly. IF you can connect to the site, check the Remote view. You should see a temporary home page IF they put one up for you. If all that works, you're ready to rumble. Sometimes, hosting providers are better at hardware and sales than at communication and service. If none of the above applies, see if they will answer the mail. The key tends to be the root server they tell you to log in to.

            I set up a godaddy account for a client about a month ago and they didn't automatically set up the ftp account, so you might have to log into your account, go to your web hosting accounts and open the control panel then go to the ftp client. That should take you to a page that lets you set up an ftp account.

              In your embedded CSS, your background image is referencing your hard drive:

                Sorry, cat walked on the keyboard...
                1. In your embedded CSS, your background image is referencing your hard
                drive:
                background-image:
                url(file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/John%20Shier/Desktop/home_bg.jpg);
                2. in your CSS file http://www.maddenballerz.com/emx_nav_left.css you have
                html.
                Address these two and post back.
                Hope this helps

                  Karl,
                  You say you ran from GoDaddy. What issue did you have with GoDaddy? I just signed up to test their hosting, and I may move all of my clients if it works out.

                  Thanks for any input you can give.

                    Actually the html is a 404 page because the css file is not there.

                      What did I miss? I looked at the CSS and saw the _emx-nav_left.css had
                      html...?

                        When I looked at it (or tried to) I got a file not found error page.
                        That error page was html. The file appears to be there now and doesn't
                        have html in it.

                          Yes, completely different now - perhaps OP picked up enough from everybody
                          to sort himself out. No html in that file now and all images appear (from
                          quick look) to be correct.

                            Yep. But all the absolute positioning is going to bite him/her sooner or
                            later. <sigh>

                                  Except for this:
                                  background-image:
                                  url(file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/John%20Shier/Desktop/home_bg.jpg)and

                                    So it is - that's what I mentioned in my first response, (bg.jpg) I should
                                    have checked.
