    Default First time I have tried to add on another domain, advice please.

    Can anyone please help me with adding on anonther domain to my account. Part of the message I received is below;

    firstwebcall.com has been setup. It can be accessed via the subdomain
    firstwebcall.anxietynomore.co.uk. FTP access has been granted with the
    user name firstwebcall@anxietynomore.co.uk and the password ######.

    I was then told to ;

    http://www.firstwebcall.com/

    You need to publish a site to the below folder:

    public_html/firstwebcall

    Could somebody please take me through the process of what i need to do. As i am alittle confused to where i start.

    Thank you

    log in to your normal control panel
    make sure you have public_html selected
    make a new folder, give it the name firstwebcall
    log out of control panel
    bring up the NEW index page you have made
    for 'firstwebcall' and select 'publish'
    It will default to 'public_html',
    Since you are publishing a new index page for
    a sub-domain, change the folder destination in
    the publish box to : public_html/firstwebcall
    so the new index page will go in to the firstwebcall
    folder. Remember, 'firstwebcall' is a sub-folder
    of the public_html directory. When you go to the www.firstwebcall.com
    you are currently seeing a file message. That will change when you place
    an index page into that sub-folder.

    You do NOT have to make a new folder in your cp - that is done for you when you made the add-on domain.

    The rest is correct.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and new to publishing websites generally. I've just published a page - just to see if it worked - www.2busy4that.com amd it worked fine, except for the images, which are not showing. The images have uploaded with the published page and I can see them in FTP manager. Incidentally, I avoided the addon domain problems by reading the above (this site is an addon domain - I just decided to work on it first).

    Any views on this?

    Here's another one, why has my email address appeared on this posting, rather than the name?

    Question 1: Your pictures probably don't show because you have hotlink protection enabled. I say this because when i try to search your imeges directly, i get this:
    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /toobusysmall.jpg on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


    Go in your CP, Hotlink, and add your site to the list of allowed sites.

    2. Because you have probably signed up with your email address as username.

    Naval I am thinking (as I read his other posts) that he would like his username in this forum changed ... if that is the case, you could submit a support ticket, giving the reasons why you would like it changed, and they will do this for you .....

    Aha! if I sign up with a new username, then you won't know it's me!

    Seriously, I will take your advice.

    I have another problem now. I set up a temporary page saying site under construction. Now I've tried to publish another index page (which published sucessfully), but the site under construction reigns supreme and won't go away. What have I done? It's www.2busy4that.com.

    Thanks

    lol Crockett ... maybe we'll call you davey, lol ....

    hmmm ....

    if you named it index, saved it as index, and published it as index to your public_html it should change to the page you want .....

    be sure to overwrite that under construction page ....

    The old, well known problem: your page is pulished as "Index" with uppercase I instead of lower case. Follow LE's advise.

    Thanks for signing up - you'll be the first non-family member to do so and will therefore be a special and valued customer! Did the aweber autoresponder work OK? You should have got a confirmation, then the report and today / tomorrow, an eletter. You'd get more, but they have yet to be written!
