FTP information:
Sometimes, when you upload a page and view it afterwards, your computer will only allow you to see the old page due to what is called 'caching' (or storage) of previously viewed pages. You can 'trick' your computer by changing the address you type into the browser the second time, i.e. your main page can be either:
http://yourdomain.com/
http://yourdomain.com/index.html
http://www.yourdomain.com/
http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html

The two most popular FTP programs are:
Webhosting for kiwis1. Cute FTP. Marketed by GlobalSCAPE Inc. you can download a free 30-day trial. You'll have to pay $39.95 after the trial period if you want to retain all the features of CuteFTP however the basic functions will continue to operate for you. http://www.globalscape.com
Webhosting for kiwis2. WS_FTP is also a very popular program. The Lite version is available for free download at: http://ipswitch.com

Creating a spam-free site
Ever wondered how you end up getting spam through email addresses on your site?
It's not as yet a major problem, but it does happen...
Sometimes spider-harvesters (robots) find email addresses in html code. Using a form on your site allows you to change the email address periodically, i.e. this month it could be sent to: feb02@yourdomain.com which using a forwarder established in your control panel, can then be sent to your usual email address.

By setting up the default email address to a non-existent address, any mail sent to an address where a forwarder had been changed, wouldn't reach you.

i.e. If someone sent an email to say, apr01@yourdomain.com and you'd since deleted that forwarder and established feb02@yourdomain.com then the email would be sent to the address established in the control panel email default setting. (You could set this to any unused address, i.e. nospam@notmydomain.com).

URL forwarding
There are 3 different ways of doing this:
Webhosting for kiwis1. URL forwarding. Can be done through your domain name control panel at most registrars, or your hosting name servers. The forwarded address is displayed in your browsers address panel.

Webhosting for kiwis2. Framing. Leaves the original name (alias) in your browsers address panel. Not too wonderful cause if you submit this address to search engines, their spiders won't get to your sites content.

Webhosting for kiwis3. CNAME (Alias) forwarding. Very few domain name registrars can provide this. For global domains try registerfly.com and UK domains just-the-name.co.uk. CNAME forwarding allows the new URL to be displayed in the browsers address panel, and duplicates file names too. Search engine spiders can access the site content. Problems will be encounted if you're intending using forms on your web pages.
a. For setup at Registerfly, refer to their instructions. Must point to an IP address. Following entries ensure both with and without www. prefix.

www CNAME (Alias) yourdomain.com.
@ ADDRESS your IP address

b. (Note: the entry for yourdomain.com on the first line, must end with a period).
c. For setup at Just-the-Name.co.uk you may add upto 10 sub domains, however all including index must point to an IP address.
