Well, thought I had the problem solved. I tried using Tripod and found out i forgot to name the file as index. Loaded up fine, but with the real remote server im trying, and having no luck even when i put the files into www folder and remove the non essential files from there. Shows up fine on the ftp but when trying to load with browser, just get one of those defult pages which says this domain has been taken, and you can search for others etc.

Urahh, any ideas?

what ftp program are you using?
make sure the files dont have any security permissions set on them

if all else fails, get the number to contact ur host provider, there ther to help when u get stuck.

Im using dreamweaver to upload. Not sure what u mean by programme if you dont mean dreamweaver. How do I check the security permissions?

Are you sure the hostname (domainname) is pointed to your server?

Everything is a-ok. Person neglected to tell me that the hosting was only just purchased and sure enough this morning, the site worked fine...

Cheers for the help
