GoDaddy Hosting and FTP with Dreamweaver

Just a quick online snippet as this took me ages to sort out.
If you have Dreamweaver and wish to use FTP to transfer your files, use the following settings in Preferences > Sites > Manage Sites > Edit > Remote Info
  • Access: FTP
  • FTP Host: (no ftp:// or www prefix please)
  • Host directory: subdomain/ (ie, the folder you have your subdomain within)
  • Login: GoDaddy Primary FTP user name (or other user name if you set that up)
  • Password: doh!
And on a Mac, I selected Passive FTP (on advice of this article)

And, as they say in Paris: 'C'est la blaireau!'
