    Hi,
    Ive got a problem, Im with a hosting company, but their are about 60 client service personal, and everytime, a different one corresponds with me.
    Problem is now, the site, it doesnt look like they want to put the first page on properly when I upload it, even though, I told them many times, that ive rectified it, or at least I think I have, cause it looks correct in my browser.

    so, Im just wondering, can the client services, sabotage my site, or if I upload the correct format, should it come out alright.
    How much control do the client services have when you upload with the ftp.

    cause, I just get the same messages back from different client services people, saying, if there is anything we can do for you, please contact us. Which Im doing.

    Is there any host company that when you upload the site, there is one person to communicate with, or it can be done automatically by a machine or something, where you dont have much human personal involvement and control over you and your site.

    Who is your webhost? I've never heard of such a thing.

    If you're creating your own website, with your own scripting, and you upload it yourself, there's nothing they do at all. You're renting disk space on their server ... it's just like having another disk drive on your PC. In fact, you can subscribe to a webhost and not even have a website. You can use their storage space as an online place to store files.

    I'm guessing you don't create your web pages (HTML,CSS) by hand. Instead you're using some web page creation software (like Dreamweaver) on your PC and uploading it. Am I correct?

    #1. Hosting is hosting, most hosting companies DO NO provide any kind of support for design, code issues, etc.

    #2. All browsers are NOT created equal, just because your browser is showing you something, doesn't mean that everyone else is seeing it that way.

    #3. It would be counterproductive for someone to "sabotage" your files, as if you think that, you might acquire hosting from one of thousands of other hosting providers. The exact opposite situation would be more likely as they want to hold onto as many customers so they would be more likely to FIX your code issues than to make it where they don't work properly.

    Regardless of the number of tech services people a hosting company has, most do NOT have direct access to files you upload ( as they don't need access for their purpose ), their job as "hosting support" is very limited, to make sure your account settings are correct, to make sure that your site is visible at the correct location, and to make sure that the server itself is not kicking up errors within your assigned container, again, they do not need access to the files on the server to see if your account has any issues, and they typically do not support code support of any kind.

    I have heard of some small hosting companies, offering "code' support in a limited fashion, but again, it would be very limited, and they would be bound more by a set of "code standards", than your actual coding habits.

    so what is the problem that you are having? code or a link to the actual page, and what you think is wrong might be helpful in determining the issue.

    Hi, thanks, just cant figure out why it wont come out then. the site is www.northerncapeescorts.com You can look at the source code, I think, if you right click and click source view. I did take out the semi colon like you said earlier, but it still isnt correct.
    the text is underneath the backgound. and all on the left side in one pile.
