Weird. Do they give you the option to download the files so you can upload the files manually?

could it be my router? Port 21?

Spent hours. I can see why its free. Ive uploaded sites to hundreds of FTP servers in the past. Never had issues like this. I think i will go back to a paid host like 1&1.

I fixed it!
The ftp address in the settings is wrong, It should be an ip address
I changed to and it worked immediately!
