    Questions about webhosting

    I am considering a move from Tripod to GoDaddy and would like to know some basics.

    1. Is there a browser based uploader or is FTP necessary?

    2. Is there an online HTML editor so I can modify files online?

    3. Do you really get unlimited storage for only $5 / month?

    4. I do not use add-ons, bots etc and do all my coding directly in HTML.  Is that practical?

    5. Tripod seems to have non-existant help.  GoDaddy seems better.

    6. I have worked in Windows and Linux but not sure which is best.  Any comments?

    Thanks - Bill

    Didn't get any replies but went ahead and signed up anyway.  My domain name does not seem to be active yet and I'm not sure how to proceed from here.  I code directly in HTML using Notepad or the supplied HTML editor.  I haven't read all the getting started stuff yet but am hoping if I just put an "index.html" file in the root directory it will be a beginning.  I am migrating over from Tripod.  Thanks for any help.

    Sorry you didn't receive any responses -- there are so many posts and, speaking for myself, I've been swamped with off-GoDaddy stuff! 😉   In case you still need help...


    All depends on what you signed up for as to what you can or cannot do.  If shared hosting, what you describe will work fine.  In GoCentral there is no FTP access to upload your index.html.


    To assign you domain to your hosting account here's how. 


    If you still have questions, reply back here and be sure to use @Muse so I get a notice and I'll come back and help!


    HTH! 😉
