    Verizon has dropped FTP access so I am unable to use Fetch to post any new pix. Is there any other way to upload via Fetch without FTP?

    Fetch also supports SFTP and FTP with TLS/SSL (sometimes called FTPS). Does Verizon support either of those?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for responding. From what I can tell from dealing with Verizon (on the web, via telephone and chat room), they are not accepting anything except using the ridiculous "site builder". Which doesn't work with Safari. And is as confusing as H*LL on Firefox.

    You might get more of an idea of the Verizon dilemma from:

    Everyone there is irate and totally unable to solve the problem. Most are losing entire web sites because of the elimination of FTP.

    Maybe Verizon will reverse its idea that FTP is not safe from hacking. I don't know.

    Hi Debbie,

    You might want to use a different web hosting company (such as Pair.com or Dreamhost) to host your website.

    Thanks,

    Thanks again for responding.

    Interestingly enough, I don't have a web site. I simply took pix and transferred them via Fetch to free web space provided by my TV/Cable/Phone provider. Then I used them and deleted them afterwards.

    I'll check out the sites you mentioned but I think you're talking about domain hosts.

    Thanks again.

    Yes, those are domain hosts. You could use them for hosting pictures, but they aren't free.

    I hope that Verizon will reconsider their policy change.
