Not laughing. Just what I need. Plain, simple to show work. B&A and close-up detail. But I'd like one in flash. How much would you or anybody else charge to build it?

Re: ftp

toan,

Go to the "Hosting & Servers" tab and select "My Hosting Account" under "Hosting Management". You should see a list of your website(s) on the next page. Select "Manage Account" under "Control Panel" and it'll take you to a new page. Open up the "Settings" tab and select the "Manage FTP Users" icon. Everything is self explanatory from there. The maximum number of users you'll be able to create depends on the type of hosting plan you have with GoDaddy. If you're looking for a reliable FTP program, get FileZilla. It fast and hasn't dropped a connection on me. It's available for all platforms and the price is just right...FREE...

Re: ftp

thanks, pixel monkey. i tried what you suggested but didn't see where i can create new user name and password. anyways, i added an additional service with godaddy calls "online file folder"

https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/email...ng.asp?ci=9022

it's less than a dollar a month and unlimited bandwidth. i can set up user name and password for my clients.

Re: ftp

Hmm...You didn't see this page (attached pic) inside "Manage FTP Users"? That's odd. Online file folder is convenient, but the max disk space you can get is only 2 gigs. I'll max that out fairly quickly. Setting FTP account is a lot better. It lets you use all the disk space that comes with your account. In my case, the whole 100 gigs. Don't forget you can also access FTP through the Godaddy main site even you don't have FTP installed in the computer, so it's pretty much files to go anywhere.
