Hi
I hope someone can help me please! I have created a website using Serif WebPlus6 and am trying to upload using WS_FTP95. I have bought a domain name and registered it with velnet.co.uk. When I try to connect using WS_FTP I get error message 'can't get click here host entry, connection failed click here.
Can anyone give me a hint please?
Thanks Lyn

The address does not exist. You must connect through your original host's FTP name (like ftp:// ftp. yourhost. com ). Your purchased domain name is used for people looking at your site, but you have to buy an FTP domain name for connection via that name.

Easiest thing to do is email your host.

Hello QuickHare
Thanks for your reply. When we registered with velnet, they gave us details for ftp access listing ftp server as click here, and giving us a user name and password. we have paid for the webspace plus domain name.
we've emailed host but are still waiting for a reply after several hours. Thought this way may be quicker!
Thanks anyway....

Ah. A thought just crossed my mind. Your domain name will be stored on a DNS (Domain Name Server) so people can look ip up. It may take up to 48hrs or longer to register on all of them. It has to filter it's way through the internet.

at Nominet four days ago, and its status is shown as "Registration request being processed".

That probably accounts for the fact that it doesn't resolve to your host's name-server yet, and is why you're getting the error message. I should give it a couple of days and try again - or you might like to contact your web hosts and find out if they have any news.

I can see your site wimboess:

*Kate Wimbush is a jeweller, based in the Midlands, working in resin and silver to create quirky and colourful brooches on a miniature scale.*

That's it right?

Thankyou all! there was a problem on the DNS but it's solved.
Dare I ask what you think, powerless?

Something like that last ickle question would be better in the Web Design forum, where a whole host of folk can review your site and give you tips and thoughts on the layout and how it is written, to help you improve it (I haven't seen the site yet! It may not need improving!).
