I am looking forward to assisting you.

May I ask for some more information:

Did you set it to passive mode?

Thank You

Michael

The FTP program is Ipswich.
Unimplemented failure
How do you set it to passive?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The address it is connected to is:-
http://thethorns.news
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The site is not in passive mode as it is connected HTTP and not FTP
Software technician: Michael Rademacher, Network Administrator replied 5 months ago

Hi,

What is your objective? I was assuming that you develop your site local and then upload files to the hosting site by using an ftp client.

If not, could you explain what you are trying to accomplish?

Thank You

That is correct I have created my site and now wish to upload it.
Software technician: Michael Rademacher, Network Administrator replied 5 months ago

Hi,

Thanks for the info.

Please check

1) Open WSFTP Pro.

2) Create your FTP site in the Site Manager

3) Edit the FTP site from the Site Manager and click on the Advanced link on the left. Check "Use Passive mode for data connections"

4) If it is already checked, please uncheck and try again.

Could you send me a screenshot form your settings?

Also: Did it return an error number?

Thank You

Michael

Hi,

So you purchased a domain with domains.google.com, which establishes the name registration, and your ownership over this name. Who is hosting your site? Chioces are lilsted here:

Google.com
Software technician: Michael Rademacher, Network Administrator replied 5 months ago

I contacted Google domains support. They only provide the registration. For content, website hosting you need to contact cloud.google.com.

Please go to https://cloud.google.com/ for details.

I have given up. It is far too complicated for an 87 year old.
My other websites were a piece of cake to set up.
Am not willing to poor more money into it
Software technician: Michael Rademacher, Network Administrator replied 4 months ago

Hi,

I understand, It can be confusing and complex.

Your best bet is using Godaddy. You would have everything with one company. They have a free web builder tool, upload , and you can get a domain as well. Maybe you want to give them a call and have them transfer your domain to their serevrs. They are very helpful: 1(###) ###-####/p>
