Re: FTP Comcast new [re: bluepennylady]  

Hello again.
I viewed the AW2k list of FTP compatiple sites and did not see Siteground in the listing. I don'w want to sign up for another un-useable service. If I do sign up I may need help configuring the FTP for AW2k.

Thanks All!

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: TIB06]  

Hi,
Your right it is not listed but....
Been using siteground for about 8 mos. now without any issues.
Works just fine.
I was the same way as you are really researched the issue before I switched from pair. But I have not had any problems, and no downtime.
They really have a lot to offer, if you are thinking of hosting a website the cost is comparable with just FTP at pair.


If haven't yet decided again I invite you to take a look at my site click on the product page, and then to the ebay auction page, those were all created with AW2K!

If you still have questions as to what siteground had to offer, go to my home page, if you click through the blue link, bottom left it guides you through their offerings!
They just made some changes to make managing your account better, and boy are they slick. Real easy to navigate.
And if you do need help, they have full blown tutorials and tech support that is fast and reliable.

And we certainly are here to help you configuring for FTP.

It is compatible, and has been VERY reliable.

Hope this helps, I know how hard the decision is, went through it to.

Thats one thing about this board we all have had to ask for help, and someone has always been there!!

Hi,

Not all compatible FTP sites are in the AW200 help files. BUt I do not know siteground.com is compatible. Marty isn't the only one using them. And I checked out their settings--they work.

AND it is really fun to play around with their site builder demo. I bet I have created three or four websites, edited, changed colors, page names, search engine optimized, etc. Didn't take much time at all.

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: bluepennylady]  

Hi, I too use Comcast as my isp but have 100megs to host my pictures so I'm not being affected. Go into your comcast account and read the help forum ...lots of people are really upset. What was suppose to be only minutes of down time are turning into weeks.

Siteground sounds very interesting. I'm paying for citymax for my website and 100megs to host pictures.

Do you know if Siteground will import all my pictures from both locations? Citymax host the pictures for my website and I use 100megs for ebay. I'm very html challanged so how easy is it to use?

Hate to jump ground without more information.

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: padorn907]  

HI,

Images and files can be moved from one provider to another. You can use a FTP client to do that. I move files and images around using WS_FTP. select what I want to move and where I want to move it to and hit upload.

If you move images that are online, you will need to edit the URL image tags to point to the right place or the images will not show up. It is not difficult to do. If your current provider is up and running, just leave what is up for auction as it is now, and simply list new Auctions and images to the new provider.

Siteground.com has a very easy to use site builder tool. You can actually give it a try from top to bottom. If you go to siteground.com's home page, look on the left hand side. First option is the sitebuilder demo. Click that link. And the sitebuilder opens in a new window. You can see precisely how you build a website from start to finish and even look at the search optimizer.

I do not have a siteground account. I am at pair.com so Marty will have to jump in about the console in the siteground account. But I can say from what I have read and the tutorials I have messed around with at siteground, it is all very easy to use.

I haven't read the Comcast boards but I know folks are upset. I have had umpteen emails about it. And I have helped as many move their auction images to another provider.

Does that help?

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: bluepennylady]  

Thanks. What I wanted to know is siteground says they will transfer your existing website to a new website with them. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this. I have about 70 items with pictures in my store and 50 items on my website, I would hate to have to manually have to change all that.

Did you know your website link signature does not work. You have a colen after www instead of a period.

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: padorn907]  

Hi,

Thank you ever so much for telling me. I have had a link week. Every shred of HTML I have written this week has had something wrong in it. And I just changed my signature a couple of days ago.

Usually most providers will move all your stuff from one site to another. However, your current auctions image URL's would have to be edited in order for the images to point to the correct place. That is why I suggested you leaving your current auction images right where they are and start new listings at the new provider.

Now your website is another issue. YOu can move it if you want. Be sure you check all the links etc for accuracy after it is moved.

I have not personally had any experience with siteground moving sites. Ask them if there have been any problems and what those problems or issues were.

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: padorn907]  

Hi,
I have not had to have them do this, but they are very good at what they do and effiecient too.
I have had great luck with all aspects of their hosting and the tech support. They have been quick to answer within minutes, any time of the day or night and have found solutions to every hiccup I have encountered.
The only issue I had to tackle concerning FTP turned out to be my ISP not siteground. But they bent over backwards to help find out what the deal was.
Before I made the switch I contacted them with compatibilty questions and even while not a customer they eagerly obliged.
That may be a way for you to feel more comfortable before you jump!
If you have questions post them I would be more than happy to try to help you out!

Marty,

YOu know, I read through their response timeframe outline. Most issues are addressed in 15 minutes or so. I thought that was pretty quick...

Re: FTP Comcast new [re: bluepennylady]  

Judy,

Yes the few times I have needed guidance, probably not even close to 15 minutes, probably less then 5!
I can't complain about the quickness of their replies.
