Ftp login - no files showing

When I log into my ftp, if that's the right phraseology, I see no files in the ftp window thing, but I know there are files there.

Any ideas why?

Not sure if I've given enough info there, but not sure what info to give.

I'm using Fetch, but it's not that because another person has tried using different software and he gets the same.

Different machines. Different apps. No files...

Buddy, hate to tell you this— But you got no files on that server.

If I go to mydomain.com my site is there - and the files are there if I log in to my hosting account. But not in my ftp app if I key in ftp.mydomain.com as hostname.

Is there something I could've switched round in my hosting account that could make it so that hostname of mydomain.com is not ftp.mydomain.com

?

Goto the WhoIS database, and make sure the IP address of the place you *think* is your server is actually the place those file reside and are being served from.

Go here and enter your domain name into 'Host Name'. Then click 'find ip address'.

Copy the address that it gives you, and use that as the hostname in your ftp software.

What's going on with your language?

Download filezilla, use yourdomain.com as the host then type your user and password. Do this in the top bars for a quick logon. You wont need to enter a port or type www.

I've tried to login using Fetch and someone else has tried on a different machine with different software - would filezilla solve the prob?

(it requires OS 10.5+ and I'm on 10.4 though i can sort a different computer if it could solve prob in some way)
