    Default Web Host Advice

    Hi,
    I've been with Site5 for say 5 years now but recently their support is total rubbish.
    I sent them a support ticket of which they asked me a question say 4 days later. I replied straight away but since then some 5 days ago now nothing at all.
    My renewal date with them is in July so can you advise a web host which I can review.

    I have been using Krystal for almost ten years now and their support is superb. Very good prices as well, buy a three year package and get it for the price of two years.

    Thanks.
    I see that they will move the site from Site 5 to their site which will help.
    I've sent them an email.

    I've been using iPower for 18 years and love it. I've never had a problem with them. I also use GoDaddy for a few friends. I think I prefer iPower.

    Hi
    I have now gone over to Krystal.
    I've noticed that the old settings in FileZilla for Site5 were like\public_html but when I upload from local to the same on Krystal I get s 404 message.
    Having said that if I upload to the remote site where it's just \ then the site is shown no problem.

    So I would like to change from \ to \public_html is that something Krystal must change or something I can do at my end ?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you should be able to set that on your end. Easiest way for me, there's an option in my ftp program to "set connection folders to current folders". If you have that, in mine it's under options, once you're connected. I can also edit it in the profile that lists the username and password for that connection. I'm sure your program has something similar to that. If you're still having problems, what program are you using, and what version of that program are you using? I'd look for help on that with the keywords "connection folders", "login folder", or "initial folder", something like that.

    Hi,
    I am using Filezilla.

    I have set it to where i would like it to be uploaded no problem.
    I can upload from my local site to remote site fine.
    The problem is my site isnt shown if i dont upload to \

    So thats why i was thinking it had to be changed at krystal etc.

    Nope, you have to change that in filezilla. Use the site manager to set the default remote directory.

    Here's a post from someone trying to do the opposite that you are. They want to change from / to /public_html, but the process is basically the same:

    Hi.
    I have configured FileZilla no problem.
    When I click the icon FileZilla opens and and the remote site is shown as \public_html no problem.
    I then upload from files local to remote.
    When I check the web site it shows a 404.

    The problem is the site is only visible if I upload to \
    Public html is a sub folder with \ but the site isn't shown if I upload to public html.

    That's why I say it's not my end.
    I think Krystal has something set there end where the files must be uploaded to \ or nothing is seen.

    I uploaded to \ a few times and site is shown.
    I then delete the files in \ and then upload again to public but then 404
    Delete files in public then upload again to \ and site is shown.

    Web site is only shown if files are uploaded to \ otherwise anywhere else 404 is shown.
