    Why can't I upload, using FTP_WS, my site to my new host? FTP keeps sending the files to the old host. I switched the nameserver yesterday, and it hasn't taken yet, but I have always been able to upload to a new host while the swich is being made. Can't I have two servers but the domain pointing to one? Do I need to cancel the old server?

    During this time of change for your domain you should ftp the files via ip address ex: 127.111.127.111

    If you ftp via the domain name, such as ftp.iwonttellmydomainname.com it can often point to the old server until the new nameservers have fully circulated.

    If you don't know the ip address of the new server you can contact your new host and they will be able to provide it. Usually it comes in your welcome email you get after signing up.

    Hope this helps,

    Core is right on the money...use the IP address....what gets really confusing is during the propagation, you can sometimes get the old site..then new site...then old site. I've had customers ask why their site isn't updating, and in most cases, they are either uploading to the domain name to the old server...or uploading to the new IP, but checking their changes using the domain name.

    Thanks, you guys. The first IP address didn't work but the second one did.
