I did put a reply on here earlier but it seems to have vanished along with another; I thought Werner couldn't find out how to log into his "espace client" as it wasn't clear whether he had actually managed to log in.

It would be useful if he could come back and say exactly what he's trying to do.

I use an FTP client, but you don't have to - you can use '1&1 WebTransfert' as an alternative.
Once logged in, that's under the 'Gérer l'espace web' on the left.

However that might not be what he's trying to do if he's used one of their build-your-own-site options.

For the above numbers for YOUR site log into the espace client. left hand side look for "gerer les noms de demaine" click on that left hand side there is YOUR website name, below that is the number you require starts with an S

Back to espace client near bottom left find link "gerer l'espace web" and then "access FTP securise" bottom left of page look for "NOM D'UTILISATEUR" and there you find the other number that begins with a U.

Suffice to say, these numbers are personal DO NOT disclose to ANYONE or they will take control of your website. Hope you can follow this.

NAME = ftp. then your wesite name ie mine = ftp.la-brise.fr

FTP SERVER = SXXXXXXXX.onlinehome.fr  = replace X with your number


USER ID = u8XXXXXXXXXX = as above replace X with the number of YOUR u ident no.

Tick passive and save password boxes
