I have password. Does the host have to do this? I've been blocked when I try.

Because 301 is an HTTP status code.

I'll dig deeper! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

You may have missed my point... HTTP statuses can't be used in FTP responses because they're two different protocols.

You're right ...I didn't...so how much deeper you want to go? If none...I appreciate you're help. If so, how do I go about establishing them then?

You might want to look into using a DNS Redirect, but that will redirect the whole subdomain/domain and not be constrained to ports. That's all I know on the topic.

Use .htaccess for 301 Do you know what a .htaccess file is?

Do you know they don't work on ftp sites? .htaccess is http only.

His question is unclear, it says "ftp on a site" not "ftp site." I assumed he was using ftp to upload files on a http site. Like I said, his question is unclear as to his intend. Yes I know there is a difference, I'm not stupid thank you very much!

Thanks Gents for the help...ok. I know the 301 was found in the "hidden files" area. So (and I'm feeling lamer by the second, but I've tried this 3 times and I'm messing something up), I created a .htaccess file with the code I've read from various folks that actually know what they're doin, (My host server did the 301 on my own site, so I couldn't "see" it happening), and then using my ftp (wrong apparently) tried to add the .htaccess file to my index file. My problem is I'm a hands-on guy and unless I can do it, I'm kinda hosed.

I appreciate the help, but do not expect you guys to waste your time on this...

Thanks again...
