    help with godaddy

    ok so i bought the domain name coleio.com to use as a practice site, then i bought a 1 year hosting account but i havent the foggiest on what to do next. i was told about filezilla and ftp and i was told that i can access the ftp thing on the godaddy site control panel, but.... i cant even find the option for control panel lol

    heres exactly what ive done..

    bought the domain name coleio.com. visited coleio.com and realised they hadn't gotten everything out of my pockets just yet haha so i then buy the economy web hosting package. now im sitting here, at 2 in the morning, just scratching my head...

    So you can log into GoDaddy ...

    1) Log into GoDaddy.

    2) Where it says "Hi, coleio", click that and then click "My Account".

    3) Now you will see a list...
    Domains
    Webhosting
    Email
    .etc

    4) Click on Webhosting

    5) You'll see this box:
    coleio.com
    Ultimate Linux Hosting with cPanel

    6) Click the green button that says: Launch
    That will launch your control panel

    7) Under the section called "Files", you'll see: FTP Accounts
    Click that

    8) Now you want to add an FTP Account....
    enter a LOGIN
    enter a PASSWORD
    leave the DIRECTORY box blank ... so you can access everything.
    Click: Create FTP Account

    Write Down your LOGIN and PASSWORD on a sheet of paper.
    Your real login will be: yourlogin@coleio.com
    Whatever you entered in for your login @coleio.com

    When you get this far, let me know, but don't tell us your LOGIN or PASSWORD.

    Download FileZilla from their website and install it on your PC.
    https://filezilla-project.org/

    Pick: Download FileZilla Client

    Tell me how much you know about the PC ...
    Can you add folders, and you know how folders and files work?
    You know how to install and run a program like FileZilla?

    When you signed-up for an account, there were two choices ...

    1) Linux with cPanel control panel
    2) Windows with Plesk control panel

    Did you choose #2?

    If you did, that might be a problem ...

    Before you go any further, contact GoDaddy and have them switch it to "Linux with cPanel control panel".

    This is important.

    You'll be totally lost if you picked #2 (the Windows Plesk)


    FTP:
    OK to create another one. In fact, you can create a few of them if you wish to have someone else access your website files.

    Hmmm...

    One thing that is a downfall is that I know for myself that I don't have any experience with Windows Plesk. Those two choices pertain to GoDaddy servers, not your PC. My advice is to contact GoDaddy and ask them to switch you now before you go any further. I'm sure they have this happen all the time.

    You'll want the Linux with cPanel account.

    Email GoDaddy or call them, ask them about it, and then go to bed. Start fresh tomorrow when you have a clear head.
