FTP Freebie Sites

Verizon just eliminated their free FTP webspace for subscribers in favor a real dog-awful, you must use their template, web design site. It’s worse than awful. I’m looking to post my web page(s) occasionally on some other FTP site, one that supports Mac format. I’ve been using drivehq (File not found - DriveHQ Web and File Hosting Service) but it’s PC-oriented and not the easiest to use. I’d really like to use Transmit for my site management. Any suggestion on where I might look?

Thanks!

For a pretty small cost these days server space is cheap.

Splash out and pay a few bucks a year to get sensible ad-free space somewhere.

On the web there is no Mac format! What you want is a unix server with a decent Cpanel.

Transmit will be quite happy transferring files to ANY server but FW does a great job all on its own.

FatCow is only £2.50 ($4) a month - surely that is worth paying for a fully featured hosting account.

There you go again Dave… helping an old man out!

Much obliged! I think even this old fart can part $4/mo!

:wink:

(you helped me out earlier this year with FW actions)

BTW Dave: What’s your take on Adobe’s new Muse app for designing web pages? Looks pretty slick to me… wysiwig like FW but prettier interface IMHO. I’m not going with a subscription like they want, but I still think it’s pretty neat so far.

Like others there is no way I will entertain a subscription model like this.

Glad you got a hosting plan sorted - and remember that you can create separate folders on the server just for testing stuff out.

Once you have a folder up there you can create a new FW doc to upload directly into that folder ie mysite.com/test

Yes… I’ve already kicked the tires… pretty slick. Their live chat’s fantastic too! I hope you don’t mind… they asked me who referred me to them and I gave them your screen handle. thanks again… got a 2-year plan and am already using with FW. I also agree with you 100% about the Adobe scheme to suck in the corporate community subscription buffs. I’d rather pay 2-$300 up front with 18mo upgrades than this monthly bullcrap… no more time payments for this old man! Just got the house paid off… whew! Talk about feeling free and clean again! :wink:

Thanks for the referral mention but I am not signed up with them to benefit from it.

They have been mentioned before as a good option and seemed to offer an economical plan. And SoftPress recommended. http://www.softpress.com/webhosting/

Glad you are sorted.
