FTP Information

 

 

Sometimes, when you upload a page and view it afterwards, your computer will only allow you to see the old page due to what is called 'caching' (or storage) of previously viewed pages. You can 'trick' your computer by changing the address you type into the browser the second time, i.e. your main page can be either:

http://yourdomain.com/

http://yourdomain.com/index.html

http://www.yourdomain.com/

http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html




The two most popular FTP programs are:


a.  Cute FTP. Marketed by GlobalSCAPE Inc. you can download a free 30-day trial. You'll have to pay $39.95 after the trial period if you want to retain all the features of CuteFTP however the basic functions will continue to operate for you.
