    Forgive me, I'm a novice and I need to get my Mac-created website from its folder to Yahoo Small Business. I'm using my website URL as the hostname and my e-mail username and password. Is this correct? When I launch FETCH, I get a "timed out" message.

    Hi,

    Based on the information from this page of Yahoo's help - http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/webhosting/gftp/gftp-09.html - you should enter the following information in Fetch's New Connection dialog:

    Hostname: ftp.domainname.com
    Username: yahooID@domainname.com
    Password: the password you use to sign into your Yahoo account

    Replace "domainname.com" with your domain name (don't include the "www" part) and yahooID with your Yahoo ID. For example, if your domain name is "goodphotos.com" and your Yahoo ID is "scott," you'd enter ftp.goodphotos.com as the hostname and scott@goodphotos.com as the username.

    Your Yahoo ID and password may be the same as the ones you use for your email, if you get your email through Yahoo.

    Let us know if this helps or not.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
