Publishing to a new site with FrontPage
If your shared-IP site has been created, but your domain name is not
yet resolving, FrontPage will have a problem publishing to your space in
the usual manner.
Generally, publishing to http://www.yourdomain.com works fine in
FrontPage. But because the name is not pointing to your space, FP must
use the IP address. For accounts with a dedicated IP (200MB and up),
this works fine as the server knows which account to put the files in.
If you have a shared IP, however, you will have to use the notation:
to publish to your site, or wait for the name to resolve.
You can also publish using FrontPage's FTP function. Just put:
instead of using the http: method.
